Event Details

For professional dance artists, makers and practitioners.

In this lecture we will examine queerness as a political and creative practice.

Starting with an introduction to theories on gender and sexuality, we will explore some of the ideas, contradictions and tensions that have emerged out of ‘queer theories’.

Then, drawing on the work by artists such as David Hoyle, Trajal Harrel, Penny Arcade, Christeene, and Heather Cassils, we will look at a number of queer performance strategies. These might include: camp and trash, excess, abjection, failure and messiness, pleasure and desire, and shame/loss/denial, offering a way to think about our engagement with politics in our own practice, especially in relation to gender and sexuality.
