Profile Information

Performance Discipline
interdisciplinary (dance + theater + sculpture)
Will Courtney and Syniva Whitney are the co-founders of GENDER TENDER, an interdisciplinary performance project rooted in dance + theater that began out of the desire to make work in a safe and rigorous environment for trans*, queer*, questioning and allied artists of all kinds. GT brings many different people together from the worlds of dance, acting, comedy, installation art, burlesque, writing, music and more. Will is the lead performer for the group and Syniva is responsible for concept + direction, choreography (set and scored) and is the writer and visual designer for the company as well. All cast members contribute their mojo, talent and unique improvisational skills.

Gender Tender has performed at Velocity Dance Center, Washington Hall, On the Boards, Mo'-Wave: Seattle's Queer arts and Music Festival, Gender Odyssey, at the Satori Group's Lab at Inscape in Neil Ferron's event Hotel Party Vol 1 and Vol 2 as well as a part of Alice Gosti's durational series PLAY>>, Modern Dance Behind the Pink Door and the Yellow Fish: Epic Durational Performance Festival all in Seattle, WA. GT premiered their first evening length work HEELS and FLATS at the 2013 Seattle Fringe Festival and Will and Syn premiered the duet Go/Long at the 2013 Next Fest NW:TOUCH at Velocity Dance Center. The GT crew shared their latest evening length work Sync or Swim at Gay City Arts in 2014. GT most recently shared part of the new work PA/CK at the Seattle International Dance Festival in June 2014.
