I make stuff and sometimes write about it

Lisa Anita Wegner is a Toronto-based storyteller, performer, actor, artist, performance artist, podcaster and filmmaker. After a breakdown at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, Lisa received a diagnosis of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD). After many years of needing a lot of experiencing exhaustion and brain fog – and just thinking she was “tired and extremely bendy,” Lisa was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

Lisa chats with Shaunna about creating through her mental and physical health issues, the artistic milestones she’s accomplished and her influences from Annie to Lady Gaga to David Bowie, being reflected in She’s Gotta Have It and Rushmore, and the soothing rewatchability of United States of Tara, Transparent and I Love Dick.

Lisa Anita Wegner’s performance art piece, Intangible Adorations, will be showing as part of Workman Arts’ Rendezvous With Madness Festival. In its 27th year, Rendezvous With Madness is the largest mental health festival in the world, showcasing film, art, comedy and much more, beginning on World Mental Health Day (October 10) through October 20th.
