Event Details


In this session, Puma Camillê, an interdisciplinary artist, model, and member of ballroom and capoeira communities, will use body movement to explore concepts of masculinity and femininity. Puma will discuss how their work draws on the connection between capoeira and vogue as overlapping practices of bodily expression arising from the African diaspora. The class will consist of an hour-and-a-half workshop involving lecture and movement as well as a half-an-hour Q&A session at the end.


This session is part of the Queer Practices / Queer Embodiment remote transdisciplinary conference that aims to bring together artists, theorists, and practitioners. The conference continues our work of building a community that is focused on intentionally developing bodily practices. We want our space to be a place for political growth and experimentation using all the materials that bodywork, sex education, and cultural inquiry can provide.

We aim to take advantage of the opportunity for an online conference. We seek to engage a broader audience that may be familiar with sex-positive culture but is not necessarily attuned to a wider set of political concerns, or approaches to gender and sexuality that are more often encountered within academic, activist, and artistic spaces. We want to put together a conference that will be open to the public and focus on fostering challenging yet accessible conversation.

Queer Practices / Queer Embodiment is curated and organized by a collaborative team consisting of Andrea Rimon (an intimacy choreographer and movement artist) and Georg Barkas (a tying and sexuality educator) and Karada House in Berlin (a queer art/research space). It is sponsored by Karada House and Github for Good.
