Sweet T: The Physical Album is a collaborative endeavor between dancers Dani Tirrell and jhon r. stronks. Together they are carving out and holding space for difficult conversation and essential healing.
Sweet T is the ritual, a ceremony in honor of how queer bodies live and protest normalcy. Through movement, voice and spoken text Dani and jhon enact queer performance practices and conduct their own spiritual mending in protest against the racial, class and gender structures that break and divide.
The Physical Album recognizes the body as an experiential catalogue that describes the essence of the souls that inhabit flesh, and bone. The Physical Album acknowledges bodies as sanctuaries where the sacred and profane can be rejoined and celebrated for the humanity they both have to offer.
