8pm /// Skeleton Architecture: This gathering is visioned as public space, especially for Black bodies to collect and to center ourselves in particular solidarity. This SA collective offering builds upon the foundational work of last year's initiatives to process and claim ways of being in public performative space that prioritize us, acting as witness, and testifying as being seen. This sharing imagines and activates a site of interSections where Black womyn and gender non-conforming artists manifest decolonizing practices through improvisation and dialogue/embodied experiences.

Please stay with us following Skeleton Architecture for a dance party with Anuradha Golder a.k.a. The Dance Pit to mark the opening of the festival!

10pm /// Anuradha Golder a.k.a. The Dance Pit: Whether it’s because of scene politics or deep-seated misogyny, racism and transphobia, the dance music community often lacks the reflexive self-critical attitude necessary to approach patriarchy and endemic racial bias. Golder will continue to push a conversation that aims to make the club a safe, open, enjoyable space for all. @thedancepit
