A Queer Hang Out
Christopher Matthews and Friends
Future Fridays at Chisenhale Dance Space
14th Sept 2018 | 7:30pm
£10 Standard | Available on the door
A Friday night pre-gaming queer space where everything surrounding you performs decorative gestures. Expect live performance, film, make-up, ceramics, words, drinks and more.
A queer hang out is a space to be together, to play, to dance, to drink, to taste, to watch, to share, to swap, to groom. Christopher Matthews has put together an ongoing durational programme on 14th Sept with something for all the senses, featuring film, decorative arts, performance and more from UK and international artists. Come hang then continue your Friday night at a local queer spot.
This performance accompanies 2 days of workshops and talks on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th Sept. Explore the intersections between queer theory, gender, identity and dance with Shannon Stewart, Arabella Stanger and Rory Pilgrim.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Sadler’s Wells and South East Dance and Jerwood Foundation Collaborate scheme.
Building on the success of Fiver Fridays, Future Fridays is our new regular programme of projects by Chisenhale Dance Space Members, in our iconic Performance Studio. Book early for the cheapest tickets, join us for a drink, and see something new – now.
