QUEER & NOW

PRODUCER/PERFORMER

Queer & Now has transitioned from a performance-based collective to a community care space during the COVID-19 pandemic. We frequently have Zoom calls where we check in, offer support for one another, laugh, and share ideas about the future.

We will have digital performances from time to time while social distancing. We started with Queers in Zoom, a collection of solo lip sync, drag, and burlesque performances, held on April 11, followed by Prom on May 23.

CELEBRITY RITUAL: BRITNEY & JANET

DRAMATURG

A healing ceremony for Britney Spears and Janet Jackson—linked by their shared destructive relationship to celebrity and J*st*n T*mb*rl*ke. A night where we cleanse the past, with verbatim readings of callous tabloids, re-imaginings of iconic (yet damaging) imagery, and an insertion of Instagram into the narrative of paparazzi.
