The new, but already legendary cabaret for queer womyn and trans* folks (previously called Strange Sisters) is back, this year with an orientation around magick. Curators Kim Katrin Milan and Gein Wong are seeking to explore ideas of queer womyn and trans* people “as Brujas and witches, as 2-Spirit folks, as transformative fluid beings that create multi-dimensional universes in our relationships, our imaginations and our lived realities. We bring glitter to the classroom, turn hallways into runways, and use our bedrooms as laboratories. We are shapeshifters, and faeries with creativity in our blood. We welcome multi-disciplinary expressions of queer women & trans* folks finding magik in the mundane.
Selected projects will be featured at our evening all access cabaret (ASL included); durational pieces during the day and visual art will be showcased during the week. All selected performance projects will receive an honorarium, technical, production, promotional, and artistic support. We are able to create space for rehearsal and mentorship to aid in the development of the work beginning in September. Also thanks to a grant from Community One, we will be extending Insatiable Sisters in the form of workshops and other creative learning opportunities.”
This is a truly important show and functions not just as a celebration of art, but also as a community gathering and celebration. It’s an amazing opportunity, but you only have until Saturday, July 5, to submit an application. More information at the Buddies in Bad Times website.
