Lineage and QueerWise present:
AUTHORING OF THEIR OWN NARRATIVES, To Remember a Decade of AIDS
A Los Angeles-based group of writer-performers, QueerWise combines history, humor, and candor to explore the shifting cultural realities of being queer in Twenty-First Century America. Celebrating their ten-year anniversary in 2022, one of their annual signature pieces has been a performance piece honoring World AIDS Day.
This year’s performance, AUTHORING THEIR OWN NARRATIVES, is a compilation of select writings from their ten-year arsenal of work illuminating HIV/AIDS. This event marks QueerWise’s first teaming with Lineage. The collective has performed more than thirty theatrical pieces in a variety of venues, including Beyond Baroque, Skylight Theatre, and Highways Performance Space.
Artist-activist Michael Kearns will produce and direct AUTHORING THEIR OWN NARRATIVES. From his internationally acclaimed solo work to his local activist involvement, Kearns’ voice — as a director, writer, producer, and actor — has never abated for nearly five decades.
AUTHORING THEIR OWN NARRATIVES is produced, in part, from a grant it has received from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Lucia Chappelle, Jim Pentecost and Corey Roskin are Associate Producers while Robin Podolsky is Head Writer.
Masks are required inside the theater at all times.
Runtime 60 minutes.
