one of joey eddy’s interests lies between found presence within giving radical, decolonial care and it’s relativity to the attunement of collective transformations in bodies during performance and performance making. eddy is thrilled to be chewing on queer politics, race politics, gender politics and disability politics within this work after years of feeling stuffed in a place he didn’t understand. he is a neurodivergent autistic human navigating the earthly currents with y’all, one moon at a time.
