EXPLODE! Queer Dance Festival re-imagines the potential of queer dance today. Queerness, in activism and art making, has always pivoted on the promise of coalition. Lesbian, trans, bi, gay, and queer people can come together and make something with their sweat and their bodies. Yet sexism, racism, classism, and transphobia have kept that promise from being fully realized in practice.

EXPLODE! takes on this challenge. The two-night festival, hosted by fierce desi drag queen LaWhore Vagistan and curated by dance scholar Clare Croft, features a range of dance forms - including South Asian dance, improvisation, Indigenous performances, and drag - danced by artists from across the US and around the world.
