Each year, La MaMa’s Squirts gathers the most exciting voices from New York City’s queer performance world, across the generations. In this year's live-streaming Squirts event, emerging artist Alexander Paris curates Reflections 2020--a weekend of queer introspection at a moment of global precarity.
On the first evening--Friday, December 18th--Paris will present reflections from a wildly diverse mix of 20 queer artists of multiple generations, genres and aesthetics, including Ty Defoe, K8 Hardy, Jeremy O. Harris, Lorelei Ramirez and Pamela Sneed. Each of them will reflect upon who they are at this historical crossroads, as global fascism attempts to consolidate its grasp, as neoliberalism attempts to reclaim its dominance and as domestic movements for liberation are reshaping the cultural landscape.
The following night will reflect upon those reflections, as Paris engages Guggenheim Award-winning performing artist Daniel Alexander Jones in an evening-length, hybrid dialogue/performance about what it means to look within when the outside world brings so much chaos to our doorsteps.
