Performing Que(e)ries Part I:
Canadian Trans Performance Artist

Nina Arsenault

(Moderated by J. Paul Halferty)

Segal Theatre
CUNY Graduate Center
*This event has limited space.

Nina Arsenault is a multi-disciplinary trans artist who has worked in live performance, video art, photography, writing and popular national media. Recently, an anthology was published on her work entitled Trans(PER)forming Nina Arsenault: An Unreasonable Body of Work from Intellect Press (2011) including scholarly and non-scholarly writings, Arsenault’s own publications, photographs, and the script from her award-winning play, The Silicone Diaries, a play that documents Arsenault’s surgical transformation.

Moderated by queer performance scholar J. Paul Halferty (University of Toronto), Arsenault will discuss the development of her bodily and performance aesthetics within the landscape of Canadian queer performance. She will also perform excerpts from her repertoire of critically acclaimed theatre and performance works as well as showcase some of her new film/photography projects.
