LEX·IC·A - OCEAN: PART II - March 2013

facebook.com/sunraeisarapper

LEX·IC·A’s Queer Cypher cultivated by JRV MAJESTY Productions with co-curators H. Melt & Emanuel Vinson is a celebration of the ways in which we communicate with one another and the knowledge we share in this process. It seeks to explore the myriad of complex and beautiful ways we share, play, love, suffer and honor one another through performance work and strive to cultivate community. Though both Chicago and hip-hop are known for their sometimes frustratingly deep wells of potential and contradiction, it is the essence of resilient community that draws forth strength, joy, and lasting, dynamic change.

The Queer Cypher is that, a response -and- a call from and for those who have been marginalized, forgotten, left out of the club. Come to ours, it’s banging, fabulous, and everything in-between. “Queer” means thriving around boundaries, “cypher,” means we’re in it together, join us for a night of honesty, free styles, and shared beats. We’re all here. LEX·IC·A is an inclusive event for anyone interested in procuring dialogue and discourse through performance. Take risks, challenge norms, resist and thrive!

LEX·IC·A’s Queer Cypher was an explosive success at the end of March and April saw some of the fruits of that labor return in collaborations between Tim’m West & OCEAN as well as new works by Drow Flow. 

Rumor has it that the Queer Cypher might be making additional rounds and looking for all kinds of performers this summer!!!

Footage from last months event can be found HERE! 

For now enjoy these photos taken by Salonathon’s team member and resident photographer Molly FitzMaurice.
