Event description

Description

Co-hosted by the DC Center, join Dance Exchange artists in workshops that connect us across age and difference to surface the stories, struggles, and possibilities of queer communities. These workshops are a part of Growing Our Own Gardens, an intergenerational performance project that engages in dialogue and action about issues faced by LGBTQ+ community members and celebrates Washington D.C.'s queer histories.

For all ages. Free with a suggested donation ($20) at the door.

Through performance and engagement, Growing Our Own Gardens engages dialogue and action about issues faced by LGBTQ+ communities and centers the stories, lives and questions of LGBTQ+ people throughout history.
Gardens explores themes of safety, resilience, and liberation: from specific stories that speak to plainclothes police officers entrapping and arresting a 50-year old gay Puerto Rican man: to dancing that includes the gendered gestural and explosive partnering, testing the resilience of the body: to spoken word that paints a picture of the lost LGBTQ+ spaces of DC and the queer patron saints who will steward us into the future.

Participants will have opportunities to join Dance Exchange on stage for the premiere performance of Growing Our Own Gardens at Dance Place in February 2018.
