Description: This Seminar is for the practitioner and the theorist. We will seek to answer questions such as: What constitutes queer performance?, Is queer what you are or what you do? and What are the historical ,religious, and political aspects of queer performance? This course is not a history of LGBTQ performance, nor is it a survey of queer theory; rather, this is a course on using performance as a research methodology for interrogating texts and artistic practices.This class invites theatre, dance, and media practitioners to utilize their craft to investigate the multi aspects of queer perfomance. Special attention will be focused on the intersection between Religion (abrahamic) and Queerness.
