Event description

Description

Location: Performance Lab, ARTS 166

Becoming Auntie: Dance, Drag, Diva, Diaspora

Why has “auntie” become the gender that makes the most sense to describe me? Tracing my performances from Indian temples in Ghana, to queer nightclubs in Texas, to the classrooms of a variety of elite academic institutions, I show how a variety of “aunties” make room for my queerness. My queerness is constituted not only by faggotry and non-binary gender presentations, but also by improvisatory, amateur, disoriented, lazy, and vulgar aesthetics. Through my own performances as LaWhore Vagistan, I work to honor my aunties, even as I age into (sexy) auntie-hood myself.
