Lifting Stone

Lifting Stone, a queer, erotic re/mix of sections from Gertrude Stein’s classic text Lifting Belly, creates space for intimate encounters. This poetic performance reflects on vulnerability, violence, our relationship to the land, and being “stone.” Working with a queer femme notion of ‘stone,’ Crowe plays with ideas of touching and being touched.


Roewan Crowe, trans-disciplinary artist, is energized by acts of disruption, transformation, and the tactical deployment of self-reflexivity. She recently published Quivering Land, a rather queer Western, that engages with poetics to reckon with legacies of violence and colonization. She is an Associate Professor at the University of Winnipeg.
