2020-21 MIT Performing Series: "QUEER FUTURES" by Lion's Jaw (2020)

Lion’s Jaw and MIT Performing present Queer Futures, a series of three discussions centered on re-orientations for performance facilitated by Thomas F. DeFrantz. The Lion’s Jaw dance festival grew out of a continued investigation into how to create environments where risk, rigor, and rebellion can happen and where the community can come together and make dance-work together. Using this virtual moment to expand its reach beyond the local Cambridge and MIT communities, the festival will share conversations with a global audience around queer arrivals and pursuits through and after the pandemic.
