BIDDO BOIIDS

artists
Scott McPheeters
 

Collaborators: Evan Hart Marsh and Justin-Rose Desper

BIDDO BOIIDS is a social performance practice and community building exercise targeting LGBTQ+ individuals in Southern Maine. Throughout a series of workshops, lead collaborators Scott McPheeters, Evan Hart Marsh, Justin-Rose Desper will work with LQBTQ+ youth in Biddeford to create a city-wide exhibition and performance of queer “nests" and queer “nesting practices/performances". The youth will construct “nests” unique to their identities and sensations of belonging, and develop movement, song, and text to accompany the work. Audiences will be invited to follow a nesting trail and witness the performances. The lead collaborators are seeking to also build a nest and develop an evening-length performance to be showcased over two weekends in winter 2024. BIDDO BOIIDS is the recipient of a Research & Development Grant.
