Queer Performance as Resistance

Australian Dance Theatre's International Centre for Chereography

The conversation invites 5 artists to talk about the underpinning of their practice. Zooming in from NSW are Mathew Bergan, speaking on queer identity and healing and Emma Maye Gibson who engages her body as a medicinal site of performative catharsis. Mandeep Raikhy, a choreographer based out of New Dehli, leads with the notion of queer intimacy as an embodied mode of political engagement. Adelaide speakers are choreographer Daniel Jaber and Virginia Barratt a researcher, artist, writer and performer.
