inVISIBLE

inVISIBLE

inVISIBLE is a collaboration rooted in dance, between dance theater artist Kai Hazelwood and members of the LA bisexual community who have contributed their own stories to the sound score and as the inspiration for inVISIBLE. inVISIBLE is part contemporary dance project, part activist initiative. It uses contemporary dance theatre to give voice to a community that is often invisible, its members considered gay or straight depending on the gender of their current partner. inVISIBLE shares the stories of bi sons dealing with frustrated fathers, biphobic mothers, creating the perfect bi superhero and more.

InVISIBLE also hosts storytelling events called pARTies which are basically like if The Moth Radio Hour and a Silent Disco had a Bi+ baby. Bring your own headphones and smart phone to listen to the collection of stories we have recorded at your own pace, while enjoying wine and snacks.
