We kiss in the shadow, wondering if others can see. Are they looking? We queer outdoors, with gestures that resist the normative. We know how to queer, but we wonder how we know. 

This workshop explores making*queering*dancing. We begin with our willingness to undo the assumptions thrown at us. After that, who knows what all we might do? This workshop will explore queer modes of address and queer|making|dancing as stabilizing possibilities of experimental live art. We will explore queer possibilities as ancestor-worship, remembering our queer kin and how they moved. We will uncover queer futures, always there in plain sight, moving us towards an other way of being. and we will make unprecedented structures, fashioning queer love into bulbous ribbons of taffy-like butch queen transrealness.

The “Moving Bodies and Social Justice” events are supported financially by the Ohio Five Collaborative Grants Program. For more detailed descriptions of the events, presenter biographies, and access to each virtual presentation, visit
