Vala_Tanz_3.jpg

VALA TANZ
Tuesday December 5th at 8PM
Finnish Hall Auditorium

Valentine Tanz is an experimental choreographic project created by Vala/ Tomasz Foltyn. This work is a collage of Valentine’s works, a fearless life/art process that refers to the history of crystal ancestors, queer nature of the universe, as well as challenges the aesthetics of drag culture. The form of the show is oscillating between grotesque theater, expressive dance, performance art and oral pleasures of talking. 
www.facebook.com/valentinetanz

This performance is part of "Fem_Ness/How do we keep on dancing?", an exchange between Kraków based artists Tomasz Foltyn, Justyna Stasiowska & Bartolomeu Koczenasz, and Berkeley artists Rosemary Hannon & Miriam Wolodarski, funded by TMU, the Trust for Mutual Understanding.

Join us for the show, discussion, and dancing afterward!

Spring 2017 Residents
RANDY REYES & GABE CHRISTIAN

Randy & Gabe join forces to bring us Pu$$y Pop for Jesus / Ballsacrilegious,  a tongue-in-cheek spin-off on traditional Sunday Services that intends to queer the memory-space-time of “Sunday mornings” by disseminating spiritual and non-spiritual texts, building queer spiritual ecologies, warm-up/praise and Serwoman sermon/intention-setting, yoga, dance improvisation, and shaking our @$$es to celebrate our individual and collective resilience.
