BIG BODY: Experimental J-Sette Performance Workshop
Wednesday, October 30, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
J-Sette, also known as Bucking, is a performance style popular in the southern United States practiced widely among majorettes and drill teams at historically Black colleges and universities, and also among teams of primarily queer men who compete in gay clubs and pride festivals. This workshop focuses on bombastic performance energy, complex relationships to rhythm and music, movement precision, group dynamics, and discovering joy in flesh and community. We will explore how the performance of J-Sette creates expectations around attention and accountability to a community, and how it positions leadership.
BIG BODY is organized in connection with an upcoming CAC performance, with details to be announced on a later date. All bodies are encouraged to participate, regardless of previous training or ability.
