As queer culture becomes more and more a global phenomenon, for both queer and non-queer communities, what does being queer really mean? Is being queer simply what you are or what you do? What might be lost through such shifts in meaning and what are the consequences of appropriating queer expressions and art forms conceived in foreign places?

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).
