          Changer Review explores the definition of dance, gender roles, and ecstatic peace through movement with dance, theater, drag and performance artist Monique Jenkinson. The video combines footage of Jenkinson's drag queen alter ego, Fauxnique completing seemingly mundane domestic tasks with audio cut-ups taken from Jenkinson's answers to questions presented by Changer Review. The result is a stunning study of movement through sound and vision.

                    Faux Real Written, conceived, choreographed & performed by Monique Jenkinson 'A real woman who is a drag queen? I don't get it. 'Does she just feel that way?' Fauxnique digs into her drag bag for the answers to these questions, comes up with some of her favorite performance gems, and strings them together with transitions that deliberately reveal their process. The result is Faux Real. Part transplanted nightclub act, part meditation on artifice and authenticity, Faux Real revels in the tension between the glamour of performance and the intimacy of its living, breathing moment. Among and between drag-based performance pieces; some sung live, some exploiting to the hilt the age-old trope of the lip-synch, and all drawing heavily on the both the rigor and the sensual pleasure of dance, the audience gets its share of wry repartee. Get ready for high heel stunts, hero worship, makeup secrets, ballerina fantasies, the subjective definition of ‘poseur,’ and the fact that in live theater, sometimes people get kicked in the face.

                      Crying in Public Written, conceived, choreographed & performed by Monique Jenkinson Directed by Chris Black 'We all enter this world crying, I just never found a reason to stop.' Inappropriate, inconvenient, unprofessional, hysterical, feminine, childish… 'Crying in Public' employs dance, lecture and torch songs; Judy Garland, Alice in Wonderland, and Mary Magdalene; floods, glaciers and tsunamis, to look at what it means to 'keep it together' and to 'fall apart.' This intensely personal work integrates multiple dance forms (aerial, ballet, and vogueing) to express both the raw joy and the worshipful focus of a good cry, and to embody both the perceived bravery and instability of the openly emotional.
