25feb7:00 pm10:00 pmForm: A Black, Queer Performance Series

Event Details

Form is a series of multidisciplinary solo and duet works that aims to capture the participating artists’ respective transitions and current experiences within their bodies. The project began when Laith Stevenson and PhaeMonae began observing and discussing the parallels within their personal journeys of gender transition and motherhood. After the two began their shared physical practice and creative exploration, they decided to invite other artists who were exploring similar themes to join the series. This series of works depicts the black, queer self as beautiful, despite the complexity of its constantly shifting form. The series features the work of 6 artists from the American South, collaborating under the shared ideas of identity, change, and the public perception of their individual bodies. Each artist employs some combination of movement, sound, photography, make-up, hair design, and film in order to cultivate a deeper appreciation for the artists’ selves. Together, the cast creates a series of environments in 4 artists’ studios in The Underground Atlanta that immerse the audiences in intimate experiences. Form consists of an all-black, queer cast and will be presented as a works-in-progress showing. In essence, Form is a series of individual works that are unapologetically provocative, boldly black, and proudly queer. The artists featured are as follows: PhaeMonae (she/they), Laith Stevenson (she/they), Nicolas Goodly (they/them), Okwae Miller(he/him),  Kerri Garrett (she/they), and Tiger Hooks (she/her). The first iteration of this project will be held on February 25th and 26th at 7 PM at the Underground Atlanta. Donations are encouraged on a sliding scale of $5-$15 and can be found here. This note comes with love. Support your local artist.
