TBA, SFU at Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 W. Hastings, Vancouver V6B 1H4
Q2Q brings scholars of queer Canadian theatre and performance together with the artists, producers, curators and administrators contributing to the vibrancy and diversity of LGBT2Q live arts scenes and cultures across the country. Combining roundtable discussions, networking events, and an evening reading series of new plays, Q2Q asks what a comparative analysis of contemporary queer performance practices can tell us about current trends and future directions, as well as the importance of documenting the larger historical narrative of Canadian queer theatrical production and reception. Addressing questions of aesthetics, diversity, economics, and form, symposium participants will work together to generate through theory and practice new ways of understanding how queer theatre and performance have contributed to the political and social development of LGBT2Q communities in Canada.
