The tensions that erupted in 2020 as the world faced a global pandemic, together and separately, can be felt in the strained relationship between three words…Connection. Communication. COVID-19.
Storytellers, musicians, artists and artisans, makers, activists, and the diverse voices of our communities come together for the exploration of these themes. Part live performance, part interview, our own stories will be interwoven with music, poetry, and movement, to express the inexpressible of an impossible year.
As talking face to face, being physically close to one another, playing music, and performing together became an action that could literally risk one’s life…How do we connect? How do we communicate? How have these operations been changed and challenged by COVID-19? A remembrance of what we’ve lost, a celebration of what we will always have. This one-hour event will be, as much as life is, what we make of it.
Featuring Head of Documentation for the Global Initiative to connect Healthcare Professionals with much needed PPE: Open Source Medical Supplies (Bay Area, CA); Globe-trotting Interdisciplinary Cabaret Performance Artist Luminous Pariah (Seattle, WA); Multidisciplinary Producer, Musician, Drag King, Chronically Creative Artist, and Host for the evening, Nüqueer Power (Boston, MA); Along with many others, presenting their solo and combined experiences.
