Queer Mating Dance
I have been developing this queer mating dance with my dancer/collaborator Riley Taylor. Loons are the state bird of my homeland ,MN. I have a connection with the loon creature and my lover/partner. I want to make this into a dance film as a part of my thesis concert. Only I want to do it in and around a natural body of water. My thought is to film at a natural hot spring. I am researching possibilities. In the film Riley will perform a real baptism, of me. Whereas, baptism has historically been used for colonization, this baptism is a birth of queerness and self love.
This performance was at Show & Tell in Berkley. This will be the bones for the dance film.
