Beyond Gravity will feature:

• Alif is for A(n)nals •
A collaboration between jose e. abad, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and Gabriel Christian

Set in a future past, where eroticism, spirituality and analplay will reign supreme, Alif is for A(n)nals will edify hungry eyes of the successful uprising mounted by queer guerillas Faluda Islam and Black Bussy, who released the world from Western Imperialism, currency, borders, and heteropatriarchy. This is a retrospective of a revolution.

• From the room beside me •
A collaboration by Rachael Dichter and Mira Kautto

Playing with inside and outside and hiding in plain site Mira (Helsinki, Finland) and Rachael (San Francisco, US) find ways of being near each other and you, ways of being with. In a space from dreams, or maybe a memory, they ask you to come and join them. To stay close. To stay. To see between the trees.

• Lindenau (rifle club) party for the other siblings •
Created and performed by Abby Crain

It’s a one person party of the many or what happens when you stop emulating a cadaver? For this work Crain unpacks the anthropocentric dogma of movement studies and regrows herself from a nonhuman blueprint. She reexamines the invitation list for the family reunion. Then she dances.
