"Gina Young trims the fat off of contemporary dance and gender mores... Don't miss!" - LA Downtown News
Butch Ballet is writer and director Gina Young’s love letter to female masculinity. A series of private moments and pedestrian dances created for and with a cast of butch women, trans men, gender nonconforming and nonbinary performers (with little actual ballet involved), Butch Ballet is a movement-theater piece of minimalist vignettes tackling softness and hardness, otherness and belonging, love and desire, butch iconography and of course... swimwear.
BUTCH BALLET has been presented by REDCAT's New Original Works Festival (2017) and the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs' LA Dance Platform. (2018)
