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!
