Snapshots on Queer Family-Making is a performance featuring Theo’s ongoing photographic practice with the queer community around them. As a continuous practice that celebrates queer people in affectionate images, it is also a form of care and resistance to loss, an existential photographic diary and a personal exploration of how images can become an inner shelter and, put together, an imaginary home and an extended family and community across physical spaces and times. The practice reflects the process of creating an imaginary community as be-coming home and alive, and queering trauma, through some of the primary connection “technologies” – during the recent lockdown, and especially for queers sometimes the only ones available – memory and imagination.
While Theo shares some of the images of people, who, as a community, in a way enabled their survival and becoming, and a poetic and movement meditation on this journey, we gather to honour and celebrate kinship and company, and, through them, perhaps, to paraphrase Jonas Mekas, the brief glimpses of paradise we carry in and with ourselves, even when there is at times nowhere to go.
This event is co-hosted by Thessaloniki Queer Arts Festival (TQAF) and is part of the TQAF 2020 festival programme. Other public events will take place in Madrid and Berlin in June and July.
