SOMArts Cultural Center presents But Tell Me What it Feels Like: The Erotic Practice of Liberation curated by Sarah Toshie Cargill.

But Tell Me What It Feels Like features new and developing works by queer of color composers, performance artists, dancers, musicians and sound healers. The festival grounds itself in the theoretical framework articulated by black lesbian feminist poet and activist Audre Lorde in her essay, Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic As Power. While the erotic can and does allude to queer sexualities, sensuality and touch, it is also a point of reference through which artists and audiences alike are invited to locate a well of deep-seated bodily wisdom.

Admission to all Festival events is free with RSVP on Eventbrite.
