Queer Dance Freakout: Season 3!
Queer Dance Freakout is an interactive choose-your-own-adventure-spectacle, inspired by the Neo-Futurists Infinite Wrench. Celebrating our 3rd season in Chicago, our company is composed of queer, trans, and/or nonbinary artists & storytellers, who perform an array of devised performance art pieces. We aim to have audiences booty shaking, grooving, and connecting with the larger queer community.
Each of our original pieces are around 1 minute in length, and the audience queues the order of these pieces from our “playlist” by verbally calling out the next piece they want to see. Queer Dance Freakout is ever changing; every piece and performance the company writes and choreographs is created from our own life experiences! No Freakout performance is the same, as we devise new work every season (and repeat some of our favorites). We can't wait to freakout with you!
Please note that masks are required to be worn by audience members at all times. We will no longer be checking vaccination at the door. Unfortunately, this venue is not ADA accessible as it is up a large flight of stairs (20+ stairs). Seating is first come first served. If you are unable to stand for the length of the performance (60 minutes), please make note of this in your ticket order and we will happily reserve a seat for you.
Our tickets are sliding scale for accessibility. If you are unable to pay the base price, we offer a discount code for low-income individuals and members of the BIPOC or TGNC community. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org the level of assistance you need and we will happily accommodate.
