Collaborating with a group of talented performers, most of whom she knows through the queer club scene, Monique Jenkinson (aka Fauxnique) creates a dance/installation inspired by the work of Jean Paul Gaultier—his icons, his fetishes, and a light-hearted, humanistic irreverence. Our People explores difference, personal expression, personal history, political engagement, and the possibility of truly coming together on a dance floor.
What is the dance of your people? And what are you wearing to the club tonight? With Rotimi Agbabiaka, Joseph Copely, Justin Morrison, Lambert Moss, Maryam Rostami, Helen Shumaker, and Carlos Venturo.
