As a performing artist and theorist, Đoàn Thanh Toàn (he him/they them) finds dance at the convergence of community, justice, and feminist queer world-making. All bodies carry histories, intersectional identities, and potential – Doan’s works acknowledge and empower the arrays that the dancing bodies lie on. While focusing on politicized realities, he also seeks values in the nature of movements and emotional exchange between the choreographer, dancers, and audience. Simultaneously, Doan challenges western modes of modern/contemporary dance. Decolonizing expressions of dance becomes one important factor in their aesthetic visions. Their recurring artistic themes include bodily integrity, queer healing, and resistive desires.
