Red Tethers - a performance by Jimmy Joyner

Date and Time for this Past Event


visit website


In the event of rain, these performances will take place at The Bakery, located at 92 Peachtree St, Atlanta, GA 30303.

Red Tethers is a series of dance performances centering queer Atlantans lost to HIV/AIDS and the hope that remains from their dreams and mine.

For each performance I will create a fabric installation, which I define as a temporary monument. This temporary monument acts as an installation of ephemera that will stay in the park for the public to experience beyond the event.

Red Tethers enacts a ritual of aliveness that tethers a past to a more robust queer future for all Atlantans. While this project centers queer audiences, all are invited to witness and participate in this ritual.

Red Tethers is supported by A&E Atlanta, The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, and Fly on a Wall.
