High Tea to raise funds for Gravity’s Artist Services Programs. I will read from my memoir-in-progress and other great performers include Gabriel Christian, Antoine Hunter’s Urban Jazz Dance Company, Sara Shelton Mann, Rachael Dichter, Jose Abad, and dance films by AXIS Dance/Alex Ketley and Marc Brew, with American Sign Language interpretation and live audio description.
In November I was honored to be part of Bridge Project 2017: Radical Movements, presented by Hope Mohr Dance
Doubly honored to be in conversation with Gender Theory pioneer and renowned theorist Judith Butler. Here are some images from our embodied conversation, ‘Ordinary Practices of the Radical Body’ – capturing the moments when we were talking about precarity and vulnerability.

I am completely honored & thrilled to be in conversation with Judith Butler at Counterpulse as part of Hope Mohr Dance’s Bridge Project.
It is a rare thing to be in live, embodied conversation with a thinker who made one’s work possible. This will be special.
The entire program is stellar. Radical Movements: Gender & Politics in Performance at Counterpulse

I am honored to bring new work to Transform Festival at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. This fall, the festival is built around the urgent question: Why Citizenship? Fauxnique responds by digging into authenticity and artifice to create a femme drag mythology. Inspired by our troubling moment and my very recent residency at Headlands, I imagine landscape as an allegory for feminist and queer resistance and use my performance practice to reenact its audacity. With special guests Qween, Miss Rahni Nothingmore & Gia!
I share an evening with the delightful RAWdance and the the fest also features the great work of Larry Arrington, Embodiment Project, Fogbeast, Jesse Hewit, Sandra Lawson Ndu, Amy Seiwert’s Imagery and Minoosh Zomorodinia, with all of us interacting with design by Giacomo Castagnola. See it all! tickets here
This work is made possible with the support of Headlands Center for the Arts
