Through his pioneering tranimal drag performances, he defies norms and challenges conventions, inviting audiences to engage with complex and challenging topics in new and unconventional ways.

At the heart of Patruni's performance art is a commitment to authenticity and inclusivity. His drag persona, "Suffocated Art Specimen," embodies the ethos of tranimal drag, rejecting traditional notions of beauty and glamour in favor of raw authenticity and self-expression.

Through a series of provocative and thought-provoking vignettes, Patruni challenges the audience to reconsider their understanding of identity and privilege, sparking meaningful conversations about race, gender, and sexuality.

In "Duct Tape," Patruni delves into the theme of body image and organs, using his performance to challenge societal norms and expectations surrounding beauty and appearance. Through a series of visually striking and emotionally charged tableaus, he invites audiences to confront their own insecurities and biases and embrace self-acceptance and self-love.

Through his performance art, Patruni Chidananda Sastry is not only challenging the status quo but also advocating for social change and promoting greater inclusivity and acceptance.
