A performance lecture narrated by Madam Tayoush that tells a story of Palestinian Queerness and how it has evolved throughout the years.

About this Event

This merging of a dance performance and visiting artist lecture will incorporate personal experiences as a queer performer at some of the top U.S. institutions as well as the development of their practice within the whole Palestinian queer herstory.

Elias Wakeem is a gender queer artist and activist, who mixes languages, changes characters and plays different identities, using grotesque body forms that help him create a scene, which challenges the boundaries existing in his society. They use installation and performance art events that present the mixture of their various characters and personas while examining the reaction of the audience to their personal story.

Madam Tayoush is the “Other” major character that Elias plays. She is one magnificent drag queen performer and entertainer who is full of glam and life. She’s here to bring joy and realness in front of her audience. She carries a message of empathy and love through self-fulfillment and artivism.

Queer-y-ing the Arab is an apexart 2020-2021 NYC Open Call Exhibition curated by the Earl of Bushwick. The exhibition is on view at apexart and Online from March 18 – May 15, 2021.
