Young and Queer, Here and Now

June 28, 2016- 7:00 pm

The late teens and early 20s are often a time of uncertainty and self-identification. We struggle to figure out who we are, who we want to be and how we can embody that to the world.

QAF and MACHiNENOiSY create opportunities for the next generation of artists and strengthen queer and allied youth through creation processes that explore identity, gender and community, culminating in this performance at the Queer Arts Festival.

Young and Queer, Here and Now give voice to queer and allied youth within a professional arts platform and demonstrate how dance performance can be a catalyst for liberation, self-development & social change.

MACHiNENOiSY Dance Society is a Vancouver-based contemporary dance company whose work has been presented nationally and internationally. Artistic Directors Delia Brett and Daelik maintain a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to dance making. They teach a democratic form of dance, which promotes the inclusion of all bodies, races, gender and ages into dance. Our methodologies have set us apart as provocateurs and courageous rule breakers among our contemporaries.

MACHiNENOiSY has been working with LGBTQ2S+ youth on developing performances since 2012.
