June 2|8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

This culminating showcase features drag performances created by students of BAX’s spring adult class “Drag Performance: Between & Beyond Gender,” facilitated by Kelindah Schuster aka Theydy Bedbug.

This class focuses on developing drag characters that expand what it means to be a drag queen, king, thing, in between or beyond mainstream representations. Through group games, writing prompts and discussion, solo and collaborative movement exercises that explore the tools of clowning, lip sync, caricature, structured improv and intuitive movement, students develop 3-5 minute drag acts in-progress culminating in this public showcase.

Join us in community to celebrate queer joy and gender-expansive expression.

This is an 18+ event.
