Intimacy in public

Kevin Fay

Kevin will organize performative reading circles that are open to the public, and he will refine choreographic strategies to address deconstruction, agreement, and sensuous, alternative knowledge. With these, he will puzzle together fragments of language to write lullaby poems and reimagine female variations from classical story ballets. His focus now is on fairy variations from Sleeping Beauty. And the goal for rehearsals at BUDA is to examine how movement and text can unsettle conventional notions of sleep and beauty rather than retool traditional, heteronormative narratives.
