The Fool is an archetype: sacred and foolish, holy and rash. In the Tarot the Fool steps off a cliff, not knowing if que will fall or fly. The Fool is a player, a performer. Que goes onto stage with nothing: no props, no script, and finds the zero point within and the characters and stories within and around. The Fool is the one who lives on the edge, who creates new ways of being, who won't conform, who dances their own dance.

 Queer theory involves the dismantling and playing of gender, sexualities and identities. Queer people experience 'zero' points and empty spaces. They create new ways of being and refuse to conform. They jump off cliffs rashly and sacredly. In the Queer Fool workshops we explore the links between Queer and the Fool. We explore the Fool archetype as LGBTQ people working together. We explore Queer as a concept and as lived experience. We acknowledge our connections and tell our stories.

The workshop is practical and may involve movement and improvised speech. All disabled people are welcome and we will do our best to accommodate your needs and working style.
