Punk or Provocateur with...Alexis Robbins

Name: Alexis Robbins

Hometown: Jacksonville, FL

Tell us about Punk As Fuck: A memory from 1991 where a group of (sometimes delusional) kids attempt to create something meaningful (to them... and them alone) all the while effectively self destructing before their efforts can be realized. No? Fine. It's about kids who want to be a badass band but other things end of happening.

Describe Punk As Fuck in three words: (creative) birth, death, re-birth (it's not that heavy though)

Who do you play in Punk As Fuck: Daisy

Describe your character in 3 words: hormonal manipulative time-bomb

Which company member is most likely to be in a band?: Russell

What would the name of my band be?: Paddie Cycle and the Tampons

What would be my punk rock stage name?: Flo Nasty... punk rock rapper and all around hype (wo)man

What is the best thing about being a part of Punk As Fuck?: The laughter in the room... and the occasional Simon and Garfunkel underscore.

What is your favorite moment in Punk as Fuck?: Lee hitting on Cassandra. Just you wait. Pretty ridiculous.

Why Punk as Fuck now?: It's been long enough where we look back at 1991 with the right amount of reverence and fondness, and not be too put off by the fashion.

Punk or Provocateur?: Daisy is definitely a provocateur. I'm more of a punk.

Have I ever performed in rep before? What are the challenges/struggles?: Nope. So far we haven't had many struggles yet. We do understand there are other people than Joel, Ryan, and Maloree in The Roaring Girl cast, but they refuse to socialize with us. Ahem.

What am I most excited to see in the other play?: Sword fighting and boobs

Why should we come see Punks and Provocateurs?: See above + hilarious nostalgia with guitars on stage. Also, chick drummers are rad.
