Bhenji Ra & HOuse Of Slé
12pm session will be Auslan interpreted.
Bhenji Ra & House of Slé will present a vogueing class for families, covering elements of the form and it’s important history. This workshop is perfect for beginners and those interested in learning more about a dance style and a community that has shaped what we know as queer culture today. All levels, all experiences and abilities are welcome to attend.
Bhenji Ra is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice combines performance and video. Her work is often concerned with the dissection of cultural theory and identity, centralizing her own personal histories as a tool to reframe performance. With an emphasis on occupation and at times collective action, her work plays with the multiplicities of spectacle while offering moments of becoming and alternative modules of community to be considered. She recently curated Sissy Ball at Carriageworks, presented by the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardis Gras and Red Bull Music.
