Longer Lifespan

Much like many queer characters in the current canon, queer work often dies too soon.

I’m thinking of a play I directed and dramaturged in 2018 called Re:Construct. It’s a beautiful play about growth from a trans perspective, and it had a successful run at the Ottawa Fringe. But it could go much further. And perhaps someday it will!

I’d like the work I do here on decentre to help expand the lifespan of queer-focused art. Not sure what that looks like yet. But wouldn’t it be great if there was some sort of dependable incubator, where creations and ideas from queer artists were met with opportunities for growth? What if the brilliance of queer artists wasn’t met with resistance as much as it was met with prosperity?
