Drag Poetry Slam II: KIN
KIN is a drag and poetry performance that explores the relationship between queer bodies, chosen families, and Miami's natural landscape.
About this Event

KIN is a site-specific drag and poetry performance project that explores the relationship between queer bodies, chosen families, and the natural landscape of Miami.

An immersive one-act play, KIN uses the botanical garden as a stage to delve into the connections between queer identities, chosen families, and the relationships of flora and fauna in South Florida's ecology. Through a synthesis of poetry, botanical research, nature-inspired costumes, and experimental drag soliloquies, a group of poets and drag performers will develop new works about an interspecies dynamic of queer community and agency.

The audience will navigate through the garden, encountering live performances, drawing parallels between the unique characteristics of plant ecosystems and the diverse expressions of non-nuclear families. The poetry, activated by the artists integrated into the natural surroundings, will weave narratives of healing, refuge, and transformation with stories of drag houses, mutual aid, and trees as community builders.

Where the first Drag Poetry Slam yearned for what home is, KIN answers: home is where we grow.
