DISCOTROPIC is a living graphic novel, manifest in episodic live events, exploring the relationship between sci-fi, disco music/ideology, astrophysics and the black American experience. In DISCOTROPIC we are creating our own fantastical world/s via dance, text, and sculpture that seeks to create a space for people of a marginalized experience. A space where we can be together, honest, relaxed, inspired, and self-empowered. I believe these are ingredients for a revolutionary space. In creating DISCOTROPIC we meditate on sparse unity, quiet virtuosity, and internalized spectacle departing from our collective queer lens.
