Queer Dance

Jennifer Monson

Oxford University Press

The essay uses poetic, descriptive, and conceptual writing approaches to articulate how the choreographic strategies of RMW(A) & RMW emerged from their historical and political contexts. The work references the 1990s and the early 2000s as historical moments influenced by the AIDS epidemic and the Internet revolution. It proposes that the notion of a queer object and action might be used to differentiate the kinds of desire that are negotiated between the performers and the audience through these choreographic approaches over time. RMW(A) & RMW is described as a practice that adapts to the unstable notion of what queer dance means for these two differently female bodies as their lives move apart and come together. The essay describes the experience of being inside the work as well as narrates the personal histories that shaped the choreography and practice of RMW(A) & RMW.

Keywords:   choreographic strategies, AIDS, audience, desire, RMW(A) & RMW, queer dance
