PERMISSION TO DANCE or REAL DANCE CLASS FOR FAKE DANCERS or QUEERNIQUE is just a dance class–with a warm up, some exercises and even a little bit of choreography.

It celebrates the ritual of coming together to be in our bodies learning things. It takes inspiration from queer theory and feminism to make sense of the practices we do or can do. PTD is a warm-up for understanding how knowledge is processed and living in our bodies. We use it to open up a nonlinear communication practice between thoughts/movement but also to queer and reclaim the rituals that are familiar to us within the context of a dance class.

About Shannon Stewart:

Shannon Stewart is a choreographic artist who splits her time between New Orleans and Europe. Her company Screaming Traps explores the intersection of dance practices, embodied identities and social choreographies. For Shannon, the body’s participation in everyday life, social systems, and how we know ourselves is an opportunity for choreographic research.  Simultaneously, the practice of dance rituals is a potential for un-training, retraining, making and unmaking. She’s proposed an open source method called Body Based Theory Practice and presented this research in dance symposiums in the US and Europe. Her work has been presented in theatres, bars, parades, river banks, living rooms, film screens and galleries, and reluctantly but often on the internet.
