Fighting 4 Queerz
Thursday 12 and Friday 13 July
Thursday 19 and Friday 20 July
St Paul’s Boxing Academy, North Church Side, HU1 1RP
Bransholme-born dancer Gareth Chambers is inviting people to join together to learn how to box in new commission, Fighting 4 Queerz.
Working with a small group of participants over a number of sessions designed to increase strength and confidence, his workshops will culminate in a choreographed performance during Pride in Hull on July 21.
“Fighting 4 Queerz is about a taking over of public spaces, as well as a defiant show of Queer strength that challenges stereotypes of the LGBT community.
I’m particularly looking for queer, non binary and trans folks of all genders, who feel a connection with communities largely centred around experiences of misogyny, homophobia and transphobia.”
Rehearsals will be held in collaboration with St. Paul’s Boxing Academy, with the final performance then taking over spaces in the city centre as part of the Pride in Hull Parade.
