Drag Performance: Between & Beyond Gender (Virtual)

Tuesdays 5:30-7:00pm with Kelindah Schuster AKA Theydy Bedbug

Ages 18+
Register for full term (10 sessions)
No class on Tuesday, November 2nd (Election Day)   

In this workshop, we carve space for anyone to access femininity, masculinity, and everything between and beyond. Celebrating that which we have access to, connecting to that which we desire, we use clowning, lip sync, and caricature to liberate from gendered expectations. Through writing prompts and discussion, we notice how gender shows up organically in our bodies to contrast the ways in which it is systematically imposed on us externally. Through embodied solo and collaborative movement, we explore connection to the audience and connection to the self as a genderful, and/or gender neutral being.

This cycle will be virtual but will culminate in a rehearsal period and tech week with an in-person showcase in the BAX Theater on December 11th*.

*All in person events will follow up-to-date City and CDC covid-safety recommendations.

In this course we open to our experiences of birth and parenting through movement in depth (also known as authentic movement).  Because our bodies are the primary sites of our parenting, reflective movement often brings unexpected insight, joy and healing.  As we collectively emerge from the present pandemic, in which our lives as parents have been deeply affected, we can nurture ourselves and our families by pausing the often relentless pace of parenting to (re)connect with ourselves.  Tuning into our bodies through subtle movement, we are trained to see and be seen in non judgemental ways.  This course is open to experienced movers and those without prior experience.  It is open to anyone who self identifies as a parent, biologically and otherwise.
