Queer Filipinx artist Kimmortal and art-fashion-dance collective Immigrant Lessons combine their respective media in selections from X Marks the Movement, a story-based show that plays with the concept of map-making in order to reframe narratives of home and diaspora. This exciting new collaboration incorporates theatre and dance directed by Kevin Fraser and Alyssa Amarshi, songs written and produced by Kimmortal, in a collective act of resistance. The story explores what it means for its characters to be in relationship with each other as diasporic artists of colour on unceded Indigenous land. Militant and musically ingratiating, this is a performance designed to move the crowd and change the conversation.
