Solo Performance & Queer Community
a workshop series with Dan Fishback
October 1 to November 19, Tuesdays, 7pm-9pm
Students will develop solo performances based on their personal obsessions and political impulses, all the while exploring the recent history of queer performance in New York City. Performance artist and instructor Dan Fishback will work closely with students to move beyond conventional notions of “self-expression” and “autobiography” to something more primal and satisfying. Using traditional queer performance as a reference point, students will be encouraged to find new artistic language to stage their most vital urges. The final session of this eight-week class will be a semi-public live performance where each student will present finished work for invited guests and for each other.Eligibility
Students of ALL races, genders, ages and sizes are encouraged to apply. Students must be prepared to work on assignments outside of class. All students MUST attend every session. Students do not have to identify as queer, as long as they identify as being part of a queer community.Application deadline: September 1
