From Drag Race to competitive balls in Harlem, drag performance is an enduring cultural phenomenon. Together with teaching artist Laurence
Myers Reese, you’ll explore performance art through the lens of drag. Students will also engage the history and culture of drag and performance art, learn to discuss and critically evaluate performances, as well as develop your own drag persona and routines.
Laurence Myers Reese (Norman, OK) is a performance artist whose work deals with identity, gender, and the body as it relates to labor and power. He has recently performed in Kansas City, MO and Portland, OR, and teaches at the Firehouse Art Center in Norman.
