Is My Body Out of Date? The Drag of Physicality in the Digital Age is a(n ongoing) performance lecture series. Performed live by (my drag alter ego) #Sergina with desktop exposure enabled, this 15-20 minute screen(ed) demo incorporates footage of previous episodes and solicits re/action from its viewers via QR disseminated questionnaires, collective reading, and choreography. Propositions of drag, gender, privacy and sex(uality) are presented within the oscillating ostentatious context of digital/physical matter/ing. Gestures are backed up by citations from theorists (alive & dead), pop songs (ditto) and advertisements, - as well as #Sergina’s own song texts. Participants should answer the agent when spoken to. A backup buddy may be enlisted.
