Event Details

I am interested in working with a group of trans and/or gender non-conforming movers of all styles and backgrounds in a movement process that will serve as research for my thesis. By “gender non-conforming,” I mean the practice of gender transgression, which may or may not manifest itself as trans identity. The project, temporarily called Performing Abduction, reimagines the alien abduction process as an embodied mode of resistance against the hyper-visibility and surveillance imposed on trans bodies. Through collaborative movement-based performance, we will explore themes and sensations of abduction: surrender, fascination, hybridity, mind control, and missing or lost time. Dancers will primarily be engaging with movement scores, developing their own movement vocabulary, and spontaneously creating with their collaborators. More information, including rehearsal and performance schedules, can be found in the form!
