Join members of LA’s vibrant bisexual community in celebrating bi visibility month. 3 Piece Suite explores bisexual identity, activism, and the complexity of human connection along with musical performances by bi singer songwriter Cindy Jollotta and an acoustic set by bi-fronted MetronOhm. Kai Hazelwood and her collaborators draw personal narratives from the Bi and disabled communities – revealing what is often not heard or seen. inVISIBLE is a collaboration between Kai, dance collaborators, and members of Los Angeles’ bisexual community who have shared their own personal narratives around coming out as bisexual, their families, and romantic relationships. Sh*t People Say deals with the complications of intersectionality and co-struggle. How can marginalized groups support each other, and acknowledge the sticky plurality of identity? Seeking… explores how blind faith plays a huge part in our intimate relationships. We trust that we will find a connection, and that we will recognize it when it appears. Despite our various identities and differences, we continue to risk our hearts and selves to find meaningful connections.
Direction and choreography by Kai Hazelwood in collaboration with the performers and development assistance from Kate Coleman and Molly Yates.
