Queer & Now: Sync or Swim
dramaturg (former stage manager)
"Our borders are shifting.
Our bodies are transforming."
Set in a world where water is rapidly rising and borders are massively disintegrating, Queer & Now: Sync or Swim follows seven mythical deities overcoming struggles rooted in rampant sexism, corporate greed, and climate change.
Told through a series of vignettes with drag, lip syncing, and dance, Queer & Now: Sync or Swim takes ancient world mythology and fuses it with contemporary pop music to embrace our impending future.
