Antonio Ramos presents No Agenda Genda, a sci-fi piece of interactive dance theater dedicated to the legacy and memory of queer icons and movement-makers. Inspired by their fierce commitment to protect their communities, regardless of societal alienation and consequence, No Agenda Genda uses emotionally-layered movement and audience participation to pay homage to the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
In a performance full of surprises, you may end up dancing the cha-cha in Antonio’s elaborate shoe collection, or enjoying tasty treats, at this glittering, exuberant engagement.
Now in its fourth year, Out of Line presents a new set of arresting, intriguing, and playful performances by some of New York City’s most exciting contemporary artists.
