‘Queer En­coun­ters’ at 7 Stages

In other theater hap­pen­ings, back this year at 7 Stages is the com­pany’s “Cu­ri­ous Queer En­coun­ters.” The event – now in its fourth year – is cu­rated by Michael Haverty and is an in­ter­ac­tive piece in which art is hid­den around and out­side the 7 Stages fa­cil­ity, with all sorts of moods and at­mos­pheres. Haverty said it’s dif­fer­ent ev­ery year de­pend­ing on the vi­sions of the in­volved par­ties.

An open call is placed ev­ery year for artists and this year’s slate in­volves Jared Daw­son, Re­becca Makus, Jed Drum­mond, Jim Grim­s­ley, Heidi S. Howard, Matthew Terrell, Ja­son Livingston, Jes­sica Unker and Co­rian El­lisor.
