One part brunch party and one part interactive performance,Touch | Screen brings warmth and intimacy to the digital space for a 21st century pandemic Valentine’s date (no date required)!

 

Accessibility Note: The cooking demonstration will have live ASL interpretation provided and the performance will have live captioning. Please contact Good Trouble Makers HERE regarding any specific access questions or needs. 

 

In Act I, Chef Kat begins the event with an interactive cooking demonstration, so you can prepare the perfect Valentine’s feast right alongside them. While your dish cooks enjoy a performance from Good Trouble Makers.

 

The Act II performance is a multidisciplinary queer love story utilizing text, voice over, music, and movement to explore how we build intimacy in the digital space: Here a way of touching. From a distance, with no one. The performance ends just as your cooking timer goes off and then it’s time to eat!

 

Stay with us for Act III, a virtual brunch party with prompts and participation from the artists.
