Work MORE! 7 is co-produced by the Queer Cultural Center, VivvyAnne ForeverMORE! and OX.
This is a show, a celebration and a Riot!
Daughters of a Riot stages moments of queer history. Moments when drag, gender variance and blatant out-queerness have exploded into riots of resistance. With lipsynch, singing, video and audience participation drag queen, burlesque performers and nightlifers trace queer genealogies and histories that brought them to the stage, celebrating the queer ancestors of San Francisco who paved the way. We bounce through time and neighborhoods leaning on our remembered and forgotten pasts while looking forward. At this moment queer visibility seems bolder than ever before, while queer identity becomes more complicated, nuanced and intersectional.
Work MORE! provides a platform for collaborative art-making that utilizes drag to disturb traditional notions of beauty, femininity and masculinity while promoting interdisciplinary collaborations among artists who co-create rather than compete. Work MORE! builds on San Francisco’s long history of drag as a community-building strategy, celebrating the diversity within the form.
