Abstract

What Are Y’all Looking At?: Transness and Durational Performance in the AmericanSouth in for public view (twenty-four) is a creative project, centering embodied performance, moving image, and time, that seeks to explore both the lived experiences and under-representation of queertrans people in the American South. Using durational endurance performance, queer memory work, and nonlinear filmmaking installation, the twenty-four-hour performance for public view (twenty-four) synthesizes ideas on transness relating to durational and endurance performance, the politics of display of transness and gender presentation, queer legibility and illegibility, embodied storytelling via queer memory work, and externalizing interiority. By engaging with queer theory and southern queertrans community stories and memories, for public view (twenty-four) exists in a lineage of works that urgently seek reflection on the violence inflicted upon queertrans bodies in the United States, with a focus on the American South.
