National Queer Arts Festival presents 515 Clues: A Kabbalistic Collabaret
515 Clues is a fairy tale for grown-ups, an experimental novel by Nomy Lamm that links stories across centuries and continents through the migrations of ethereal bird-girls who appear in moments of trauma and transformation. The Kabbalistic Collabaret explores experiences of longing, survival, and bodily disruption that spiral us into each other's worlds, weaving a web of queer mysticism through storytelling, puppetry, video, music, dance, spoken word and ritual. We strive to encompass the fullness of our histories, connections, and futures, breathing new life into the dreams of our ancestors, witnessing each other as we wish to be seen. Mythic birds on the edge of the water hark back to ancestral survival stories. Children in a hospital grow wings to protect each other and spread messages of healing. Queer youth write letters of advice to a teenage runaway. An on-site video booth asks: Where does your magic come from?
