Grand re Union LIVE: re Forming Community Connections

March 19 - March 20

Join us for two public events exploring multidisciplinary perspectives on accessibility and site-specific cultural production. Grand re Union aims to create togetherness in spite of the postmodern fragmented subjectivities and socialities across various neofacist national contexts where white supremacy, homophobia, racial capitalism, environmental destruction, and generalized subjugating cultural norms violently damage individuals, communities, economies, and the planet.

Colossus

April 24 - April 25

In Colossus, Choreographer Mica Sigourney, Performer Silk Worm and Stylist Maryam Rostami create jokes in the grass and nightlife in the afternoon, as the choreography reckons with its new home out of doors. Colossus is two daytime non-dragged drag queens with a wheelbarrow instead of a stage on a ketamine fueled tiny odyssey across San Francisco.
