DNAWORKS , The Secret Sharer

Residency: July 7-20, 2022   

DNAWORKS is adapting Joseph Conrad’s 1909 novella The Secret Sharer into a mixed-media performance work. Considered an early queer text, The Secret Sharer integrates dance/text/music/projections and will be performed in an open-concept space with audiences co-creating the environment and the narrative. This devised work is an exploration of fragility, tenderness, and intimacy in times of personal duress and societal discrimination–—the narrative of a silent, shared connection between two outsiders in the face of violence. In response to an increase in both hate crimes and the visibility of LGBTQQ2SPIAA+ youth suicides worldwide, we wish to create a space for resiliency and healing. Public presentation TBD.
