The Bad Oracle: Hilarity Ensues with Christine Ferrera

"Ferrera’s rigorous with her crafted style (delivering each line as if about to fall asleep during her own powerpoint presentation), but presents humor of greater nuance and bite."

-Tim Paggi

The granddaughter of Sicilian immigrants who ran Cave of the Winds

the legendary Chicago supper club that hosted touring vaudeville acts, Christine Ferrera creates work in performance, video and painting that explores the intersection of art and comedy. Occupying a unique place in the span of feminist art, her intimate stories begin with a familiar experience and gradually veer into liminal and unpredictable terrain, revealing their emotional core.

Christine Ferrera's work has appeared on NPR’s The Story, WYPR’s The Signal and the podcast You/Me/Them/Everybody. She was a featured solo performer in the 2014 Amsterdam Fringe Festival, a 2013 Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award recipient and a 2007 Resident Artist at the Sanskriti Foundation in New Delhi. She has performed at galleries, museums, hotel conference rooms and crawl spaces, internationally. She lives and works and eats and prays and loves in Baltimore, USA.

Starbux Diary: My 10-year Journey to Caffeinated Enlightenment 

“Hilariously personal."

-Bret McCabe

Baltimore City Paper's Book Review: 

Starbux Diary: My 10-year Journey to Caffeinated Enlightenment

“With philosophical flights of fancy and meditations on the nature of art, creation, true love, forgiveness, the sacred, and the profane, this book is improbably profound, as if Ferrera impregnated a series of Starbucks comment cards as a joke, and somehow they gave birth to literature."

-Charlotte Benedetto
