DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE | “THREE DAYS”
WED OCT 26 + THU OCT 27 at 9PM
PIGOTT THEATER in MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM
FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC with RSVP
A concept album turned dance-theater piece about friendship, sex work, and queer futurity.
These characters are among a generation of queer people aging into a void of uncertainty. They came of age and of queerness between Protease Inhibitors and Marriage Equality. Now they (we) take PrEP and we fuq with a bit less fear — fear that the person we are eyeing might infect us with death. But some of us want kids, some of us want healthcare, some of us want a home to grow into. And there is a wide gap of unknown between our present and our future because many in the generation immediately preceding ours either lost their lives or lost their partners. Without a sense of possible paths taken, the future’s overwhelming emptiness can become a force of paralysis — the question where and how do I even begin? Is too large to take on. And yet, that overwhelming emptiness can also look a lot like an empty stage, a blank canvas, a new document. Queerness, as we have come to sense in our aging, might be about filling that void of uncertainty with art.
