2022-23 Fresh AiR Artists-in-Residence
Venue: Studio at the ATB Financial Arts Barns
Gym Class Queer-roes centers around a fictional queer gym and the people who go there. This piece asks us to see the value in queer spaces, the relationship between the body and being queer, and wanting to connect and be less lonely.
HOW TO ENJOY GYM CLASS QUEER-ROES:
Thursday, July 7, 2:30-7:30pm
On the first day of the Festival, Steven & Nicole will be opening their rehearsal hall and invite community members to join and share their relationships to fitness, fitness spaces, queerness, and how it all connects. The artists are eager to speak with community members with a wide variety of experience with fitness and queerness. This will be an open conversation to talk about physical and mental health and how you feel in public fitness spaces.
If you’d like to share privately with Steven and Nicole, you can book a 20-minute slot from 2:30-4:30pm to chat with the two artists by yourself. Click here to book a 20-minute private slot!
If you’d like to share with a group, we’re opening the doors for anyone to come in and join from 5:30-7:30pm.
Sunday July 10, 2:30pm-3:15pm
At the end of the process, Steven & Nicole will share a progress reading of excerpts from the production. This event will take place in a rehearsal studio at the ATB Financial Arts Barns (10330 84 Avenue NW). Patrons will be encouraged to meet at the southwest administration doors for the building.
