Arenalodge

Gallery 1 / Gallery 2
Feb 6 - Mar 28

Consisting of sculptural artifacts, performative photography, and choreographed, action-based video works, Kris and Will’s Arenalodge twists and bends post-queer and normative constructs of masculinity searching for a re-imagined future form of a relationship. The result of this exploration falls somewhere between the genuine, though limited, realm of the heterosexual bromance and a more inclusive form of queer embodiment. Humor and light-heartedness are a necessary part of the equation as these two world-views butt heads and scuffle with one another, eventually yielding a mashed up, mixed up reality.

 

thunder and flowers: queer aurality / Radiodress

Workshop
Feb 14, 12:00pm - 5:00pm

thunder and flowers: queer aurality is an embodied sound workshop, exploring the intersection of our sensual selves and the power of collective voice. Using strategies stemming from Radiodress' material and meditation practices, participants experience a wild assortment of delightful resonances in and outside their bodies. Through the use of mystical sound meditations, movement, collective reading and improvised play, workshop participants deepen their understanding of the human voice in its multiple dimensions, and open their awareness to the possibilities of connected radical action.

Presented as part of a duo of queer sound workshops (with Joshua Vettivelu's Pulses) for Valentine’s Day presented for The Trent Centre for Gender and Social Justice’s Self-Love Week (Feb. 7 to 14, 2015).
