Welcome to the Molecular Queering Agency. We are the agency responsible for the industrial alienation of the human, non-human, and the planetary. The molecular colonization of endocrine disrupting compounds asks us to acknowledge our bodies as changeable, mutable, and responsive with the environment. We invite you to join a 10-person (socially-distanced) disobedience ritual designed to neutralize your eco-heteronormative fears around our collective alien becoming. We ask you to be loyal representatives of MQA and carry out this performance with a sample of your own urine. You will also be dressed in MQA uniforms and guided through simple choreography that is part-science and part-witchcraft. The uniforms include a plastic oxygen mask that may slightly limit airflow. The performance will be English-speaking and photo documented, and may be attended by a larger public audience. All uniforms and equipment will be sanitized for the performance.
