BUTCH BALLET at REDCAT’s NOW Festival
August 10, 2017 @ 8:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30 pm, repeating until August 12, 2017
BUTCH BALLET is writer and director Gina Young’s love letter to female masculinity. A series of private moments and pedestrian “dances” for a cast of butch, gender nonconforming and nonbinary performers (with no actual ballet involved!), BUTCH BALLET is a movement-theater piece of minimalist vignettes tackling softness and hardness, otherness and belonging, love and desire, butch iconography and of course… swimwear. Written and directed by Gina Young and starring Christine Treibel, Jenn Crockett, Jess Imme, Gino Conti and Eli Eileen. Set and costume design by Mikki Yamashiro. Part of REDCAT’s New Original Works Festival, featuring the work of numerous women and queer artists in Los Angeles.
