This discussion-based seminar takes a multi-disciplinary, multi-media, approach to study LGBTQ performance in the U.S., historically and in the present moment. We will also explore how the fields of queer theory and queer studies have turned to performance and performativity as key modes through which gender and sexuality are expressed and understood. Case studies pay attention the diverse cultural, racial, able, and geographic locations, as well as the variety of platforms/events/organizations that make this moment a vital one for LGBTQ performance. In this class, we pay particular emphasis on queer of color, trans*-, and crip/queer approaches and cultural practices. Focusing on a new performance almost each class day, we will engage a wide variety of performances onstage (dance, film performance art, multi-media works), in galleries (installations), in community sites (social practice art, community-based art), in video/film (online media platforms, as well as film and television markets) to ask how LGBTQ performance has informed LGBTQ experience, and continues to do so today. Given our location, the students will study Austin’s LGBTQ performance scene.
