Queer Dance

thomas f. defrantz

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers three dimensions of a queer dance ontology: being, doing, and making. The tri-parte exploration assumes that there is something called queer, and it can be done, and made, as dance. Through exploration of a collaborative queer work “theory-ography 4.5—a we still queer here” created by SLIPPAGE:performance|culture|technology, the chapter demonstrates that dance enhances queer visibility. A consideration of the essential participation of viewing/recognition that defines queer, the chapter concludes that while dance emerges from being and doing, perhaps, its contents are brought into focus by the making of its various audiences who can narrate the queerness at hand.

Keywords:   dance, queer dance ontology, SLIPPAGE, queer visibility, queerness
