Three panel discussions with leaders from the queer performance communities to discuss and dissect queer culture and its intersections with the social, the political and the performative. These conversations, a regular feature in Dancehouse's public programs, are presented here in a first-time partnership with Midsumma, Victoria's premier LGBTQI+ festival. Structured in three parts, this series will reflect on the specificities and forces at play in Australian queer culture(s).

Bar Topic – Queer Histories
Considering the globalisation and commodification of queer culture, what are the local specificities? Which forms of queerness resist these forces and which choose to embrace them and why? With a focus on the queer histories of Melbourne and Sydney, this conversation unpacks the entanglement of various art forms and queerness since the '60s.
