LOOSE is an autobiographical examination of how gender expression, and racial identity affect each other when we navigate public space. Conversations with other gender non-conforming people of color are captured and turned into a live documentary performance that also blends the practices DJ remixing techniques and live video mixing. It explores a concept of remixing as: 1) a process of mental and physical image appropriation and 2) a mode of existence and survival, which turn everyday interactions into a creative act. LOOSE is designed to be improvisational. No two performances are the same.

D’hana Perry is a DJ, event creator and a recent recipient of an MFA candidate in Media Art from Emerson College. Their work explores liminal identity construction, gender/racial performance and self-expression. For more about their other work, check out chubrubproductions.com.
