Idle Cosmopolitan: On Trans Monogamy

Idle Cosmopolitan: On Trans Monogamy is a night of videos and reflection centering on the recent webseries Idle Cosmopolitan created by Joshua Byron. The webseries tells the story of a writer thinking through monogamy and ghosting while confronting their own ideas of homonormativity, love, afterlife, and embodiment. Filmed across multiple states with a DIY mostly trans and queer cast and crew, the piece was produced by Artless Media. The piece stars creator Joshua Byron, Ben Douglas, Marie Richardson, Milly Cai, Prairie M Faul, Simon Simone Defeo, Molly Soda, Reilly Gallogly, Anne Anderson, Stella Shaffer. Weaving together tales of uncertainty, fragmentation, dreams, and death the result is a journey through "The Queer World" and through hierarchies of relationship status in a Grindr-soaked world. What does monogamy even mean in 2017 anymore? Members of the cast and crew will be present for a Q and A and discussion about trans art, DIY practice, and more. 

Doors at 7:30pm, Videos at 8pm

Artists and actors Milly Cai, Reilly Gallogly, Anne Anderson, and Annie Magan will be present to discuss their involvement and own artistic practices. The Q and A will be facilatated by Ciaran McQuiston.
