Red Tethers is a series of dance performances centering queer Atlantans lost to HIV/AIDS and the hope that remains from their dreams and mine. For each performance I will create a fabric installation, which I define as a temporary monument. This temporary monument acts as an installation of ephemera that will stay in the park for the public to experience beyond the event. Red Tethers enacts a ritual of aliveness that tethers a past to a more robust queer future for all Atlantans. While this project centers queer audiences, all are invited to witness and participate in this ritual.
