TRANS-Ville | ACT THREE began with a powerful intergenerational act by infamous artist Ann Liv Young staging her 10 year old daughter Lovey to dance and ‘shine like a diamond’ nurturing a compelling and disturbing transfer of talent. Further displayed was a trans-galactic performance with the futuristic styling of queer artist Gage of the Boone. Breaking up to actionism, Heide Hatry placidly layed an egg out of her vagina to smash it on the gallery window while proclaiming ‘I reject the proposition that biology is my destiny’. Contemporary dance performance artist Miriam Parker bridged her movement practice with visual arts in a transmutative act. Female based collective Legacy Fatale examined a trans-political state introducing hypnotic practice, group choreography and sound work. Jamaican-born Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow delivered her transcultural social soca dance inviting the public to wrap themselves in a melting pot of international flags. And finally singer-songwriter Jade DeLaFleur brought her exotic soul musical band together to give us a 100 percent of instrumental positive vibe.
