Ripples the interdisciplinary performance piece dives into the worlds of lesbian childhood, queer dreaming and queer parenting. Unearthing and reclaiming queerness from erasure and lack of representation: Ripples invites its audience members to question the dominant narratives that accompany youth, reproduction and aging. As the first part of a performative queer family album, the performance merges the past, present and future. Shadowed, shimmering and liquefied- Ripples resists, reclaims and conjures a hopeful, grounded queer future.
