And They Were Shipmates:
A Queer Pirate Romance Adventure &
Queer Dance Freakout
Saturday 9:30- 11:00
A double feature celebrating the Queer community!
And They Were Shipmates presents a gay pirate show full of fights and fun that you can’t miss! Join us onboard Calico Jack’s ship, The Ranger, as we follow the tale of the infamous female pirates, Anne Bonny and Mary Read. This (occasionally) true story based on historical facts will have you laughing, sighing, and gasping, oh aye!
Then stick around for Queer Dance Freakout, an interactive, choose your own adventure spectacle inspired by the Neo-Futurists' Infinite Wrench. This company of queer, trans, and nonbinary choreographers and storytellers will perform up to 30 dances that will have audiences booty shaking, grooving, and connecting with the queer community. Queer Dance Freakout is ever changing as each performance the company writes and choreographs new pieces, so don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime dance party!
Fake fights for real people! Counterfeit Combat is a company of professionally trained actors and stage combatants that foster a compassionate learning environment where students are encouraged to try new things and support each other as they grow in confidence and skill. We have been around since summer of 2021, and have taught a variety of students in a wide range of skill and age. We are all Chicago based artists who use our combat abilities in shows and performances.
Gender Fucked Productions is a company of queer, trans, and nonbinary choreographers and story tellers. Our values include Consent, Non- Illusory Theatre, Queer Art for Queer People, Equity, and Intersectionality.
