Event description

Description

On the weekend of August 18 - 20, 2017 BOFFO will present its annual Fire Island Performance Festival: a weekend of dance, performance, and music responding to the island’s unique social and geographic context. BOFFO’s third iteration of the Performance Festival is dedicated to continuing the dialogue amongst generations in the queer community. Particularly, we have chosen artists that highlight pride in gay, lesbian, and trans history by reinventing art forms that are integral to queer culture. The artists participating in this program have demonstrated strong interests in engaging queer communities as audiences, as well as points of inspiration: What does it mean to create a work of art "for" a queer community? What does that community look like? How are queer communities evolving in response to the current political climate? Building from these questions, through the performances, we seek to create dialogue around and highlight underrepresented voices.

All performances are free unless otherwise noted! While not required for attendance, we encourage attendees to register for events through the purchase of free tickets as space is limited and can only be guaranteed through registration.
