5th Installment of NEEDING IT: Solo Performance in Queer Community Set for 6/215th Installment of NEEDING IT: Solo Performance in Queer Community Set for 6/21
by BWW News Desk - Jun 2, 2016

This year marks the fifth installment of 'NEEDING IT: Solo Performance in Queer Community,' a two-month workshop in which students develop their own pieces while studying the history of queer performance in New York City. This class emerged directly from the very first show Dan Fishback developed at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange, when he was an Artist in Residence in 2010-11. Fishback's solo piece, 'thirtynothing,' aimed to make sense of his life as a young queer person in the context of his community's history -- a history that was largely unknown to him. Through this work, Fishback began to understand that history is a human right, and that queer communities cannot be healthy unless there are structured ways to pass along stories from generation to generation.
