‘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.
