MAY 4, SAT at 2PM
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Forum
A movement workshop and dialogue exploring the issues of queer identity, art and race. Participants will be guided through a process of unpacking questions: What is queer? What is queer art? How does queer interact, move and inhabit race? Can race be queered? Be prepared to leave with questions unanswered and move your body. Workshop led by Comedian/Educator, Micia Mosely, Ph.D.
This event is part of ONSITE — a program of Dancers’ Group that brings site-specific dance performances, free-of-charge, to the public throughout San Francisco — with support from CounterPULSE. In June, ONSITE presents choreographer Amara Tabor-Smith’s He Moved Swiftly but Gently Down a Not Too Crowded Street: Ed Mock and Other True Tales in a City That Once Was. Traveling through multiple locations in San Francisco, Tabor-Smith conjures the spirit of Ed Mock: a black, gay artist whose untimely death from AIDS in the 1980’s left a lasting impression on her and many of the region’s most important artists.
