What makes you queergasm? Errant flowers reaching up through cracks in Time? Reverberations of official history singing to a different tune? Collective witnessing of that which is said not to exist? Bodies that exceed language, or generate new ones? The uncanny relationship between jouissance and pain? Intimacy with strangers? We would like to know, we would like to share, and we would like to do it with you.
So, please join us for Queergasm! 2012, occurring in tandem with Northwestern University’s Queer Pride Graduate Student Conference Queertopia! Fucking/Sexing the Law: Love as/at the Limit, to see, hear, feel and participate in performances ranging in genre from durational to digital, personal narrative to puppetry, mytho/biography to multi-media serenade. This year’s event features new work from our headliner, misty de berry, and a dozen fabulous performers hailing from Chicago, New York City, Boston and London to engage questions of queer desire and belonging, transitions between genders, intersections of race, sexuality and the nation-state, and the potentiality of trauma, in live performance.

Hope to see you there.
