Two Truths & A Lie. Go!

[u.u.u.] is a choreographic and healing container that seeks to prototype the energetics of an eventual physical club space that will exist as part of my overarching vision that I am currently designing called The School of Tenderness, Embodied Kinetics, and Alchemical Arts / La Escuela (2020 – 2033). Each site will have at its’ core a queer club, innovation incubator, farm, healing center, and ritualistic / performance venue. The School of Tenderness will be by and for Black, Indigenous, Queer, Trans Creatives and Allies and will be in service to expanding our resilience, activating our liberation, healing our intergenerational trauma (alone, and together), and supporting our rest and dreaming through various programming channels including retreats, residencies, fiestas, incubators, encuentrxs and other circles and constellations.

[u.u.u] brings us all together and asks us all to “stop acting polite, speak truth to power, and start getting real.” There is a lot at stake for each and every one of us right now. It is up to you to decide how much of yourself you wish to share. This is for you, loved one. Celebrate yourself. Celebrate your existence. Celebrate the wounds that are ever so swiftly healing. You’ve got this! Our lives have always mattered and will continue to matter today, tomorrow, in perpetuity.
