The sixth edition of 20% Theatre Company’s Q-Stage: New Works Series is here. The performance festival showcases artists working in a variety of forms—such as soundplay, visual pieces, and storytelling—as they draw on their queer experiences and identities. This installment features four experimental performances created by local queer artists. The first weekend includes Taylor Seaberg’s loosely autobiographical audio/visual play “Weirdo_Indigo_Child,” and “Displacements and Diaries,” an immersive work of prose, film, live vocal composition, and theater by Dua Saleh. Next week features Keila Anali Saucedo’s “Brujeri-a for Beginners,” which explores the complexities of spirituality, and D. Allen’s “Net/work,” which simulates and shares the poet’s experiences with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
