February 27, 2019 - 7:30pm   body fail body -- new ensemble work @ The Guthrie Theater

Eight trans and queer artists working in the twin-cities comes together to learn through each other - making work which explores endurance, pleasure, the reality of space, ritual, object, & nature(s). We invite witness, responsibility and honor of the material self and bodies in relationship. This interdisciplinary night will include movement, performance, the peeling of layers, and the recycling of tropes. body fail body is a real-time experience/experiment in continuity and conversation.

about our company : 
We collaborate constructively. The audience, as witness, is part of our collective. We are dancers, singers, disruptors, authors, playwrights, lovers, activists, actors, educators, in transition, poets, designers, experimental event producers, students, teachers, healers, and here.
