Gender Expansive Sensual Performance with Theydy Bedbug: Gender is a playground, and striptease, lip sync, and embodied movement are my favorite toys. In this class, we will use these tools in performance to explore the joyful sensual expression that is uniquely our own. Inspired by the gifts of femininity, masculinity, plants, animals, and other nonhuman entities, we will tap into how to turn on an audience, activate our most empowered personas, and channel our sensual magic on stage. In connection and community, we will practice releasing narratives that inhibit our authentic sexual expression and stories about how we “should” move, express, or dress based on gender norms we’ve inherited from structures of power that disconnect us from each other, our sexual agency, and our intuitive gender creativity. We will play group games, duet exercises, and build toward (optional) short solo performances that experiment with erotic eye contact, gesture, clothing reveals, and storytelling. This class centers queer and gender nonconforming wisdom, and all genders and sexualities are welcome
