GLITCH! @ 280:
An Evening of Queer F*!@king Performances   (2021)

A showcase of queer performance for and by the student community at SAIC, that primarily highlights a variety of works that center drag as a multidisciplinary practice and art form. This is a celebration of queerness and   non-heteronormative expression that aspires to encourage a cross-pollination of departments and foster collaboration across campus. This event also serves to situate and revolve other practices and mediums around drag performance, in order to discover a commons. It took over the front, streetside architecture of SAIC's

280 building. Making the exterior of the building our stage and imagining alternative spaces for happenings is a direct creative response to the limitations of performing indoors during the pandemic.

Performers: Pussy Grime, Celeste, La Lesbianas, Dorsey Swann, Nip Slip, red misterRess, Sweet Aussie B

Film/projection: Ruby Que 

DJ: 404 Not Found
