Love, sex, desire, religion, and how these things construct or deconstruct us are themes that run through this year’s showcase. You’ll see a conversion therapy revenge film; Zachary Drucker reenacting trans history from the 1950s; the ecstasy of a queer saint bringing her to the gates of heaven; Trulee Hall’s surreal, mime-like sport and lesbian make-out-session that combines puppetry, CGI, claymation, and all the sexy strangeness that has made her famous. You’ll feel the wrath of music and performance artist Gianna Gianna and the worth of the incredible people behind the No Sesso fashion label. Come watch as all the artists in this program create and express themselves on the edge.
