QUEEN STREET is a physicalized experience through the lens of queer, trans, non binary, and gender nonconforming people of color. This full length evening dance show highlights the importance of centering intersectionality by giving audiences a peek inside the physical, mental, and spiritual transitions of its performers. Randy Ford (Au Collective, Black Bois) creator and performer, uses dance, theater, photography, video, and song to show how evolution doesn’t just happen once but we are in an ever evolving state. The cast and crew are all made up of Queer, Trans, non binary, gender non conforming (gnc), artists of color who live in Seattle, WA. Too often are these stories blurred, erased, and appropriated by pop culture. This show brings those that reside in the margins front and center to be seen and heard.
What started off as a solo project now involves 9 of Seattle’s electrifying creatives:
Randy Ford – Creator
Dominique Stephens – Production Manager
Kuo-Hao – Set Designer
Nic Masangkay – Music Producer
Dominique Thomas – Lighting Technician
Kat Young – Photographer
Saira Barbaric – Collaborating Performer
Keelan Johnson – Collaborating Performer
Chip Sherman – Collaborating Performer
& Co-produced with Central District Forum for Arts & Ideas (shoutout to Sharon, Nina, and Merri Ann)
