From June 12-18, 2023 DISCO RIOT will present San Diego’s only queer-focused movement-arts festival, Queer Mvmnt Fest. Under the direction of local queer dance artists, Desiree Cuizon and Trystan Merrick, this festival will feature artists whom identify as part of the queer, trans and gender-nonconforming dance community in San Diego and beyond. This festival empowers and showcase LGBTQ+ artists from all backgrounds through performance, workshops, discussions, and classes. The wide variety of programming offers opportunities in queer focused spaces as well as sharing with the general public. Queer Mvmnt Fest will continue to highlight the work of BIPOC artists within the LGBTQ+ community, examining and centering the need for addressing inequity through an intersectional lens. This festival supports representation and celebration of queer and BIPOC dance artists in the San Diego community and beyond. We are looking for artists to participate in this 6-day Festival. The program offers classes/workshops, performances, panel discussions, and a film screening.
