Are the commune people gay?

Are the small town people gay and lesbian is a question that was asked by many persons since the Commune People were shaped in the late 1970s. They were a concept disco group consisting of gay and lesbian stereotypes who had been created by Adams producers Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo to disco’s largely gay projected audience.

The initial customers of the group had been a officer (Victor Willis), a construction employee (David Hodo), a rancher (Randy Jones), a enthusiast (Alex Briley) and a Native American chief (Felipe Rose). Willis was also the lead singer in the band, who have co-wrote many of their sinks into.

Village People a new number of sinks into that helped bring them towards the forefront of disco. Their particular music was catchy and their camp design, costumes and dance goes helped these people become popular.

That they had a hit solo with the tune “YMCA” 33 years ago. 2 weeks . song that has become one of the most familiar anthems from the gay community and it is a mainstay in advertising, films, tv and theater.

When he was your lead singer for the Village People, Victor Willis had no idea that his sexy and suggestive lyrics had been going to make him famous. But now this individual has obtained some privileges to the music that he co-wrote with his band’s creators, France’s Jacques Morali and Henri Berolo.

Willis was able to settle back his legal rights to thirty-three of the band’s most well-liked songs because of a little-known supply in copyright laws rules. It permits people to regain copyright control over their works more than 30 years after they actually signed away the rights.

Work Group

Objective Enactive
This online lecture-demonstration unfolds the term ´Poetic Materiality´ within the context of designing and choreographing with Somatic Costumes. Through critiquing and applying the somatic practice of Skinner Releasing Technique, the poetics of philosopher Gaston Bachelard and the materiality of anthropologist Tim Ingold, this talk begins to map poetic and material agencies between bodies-costumes within the design-performance encounter.

Artist Talk

Objective Enactive

This talk will focus on the first outcome of Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, a tripartite site-specific, where I am pursuing a speculative exploration of the ecology of the city, between the urban and the biological, unfolding its layers and materiality of time. The talk will end in a conversation between fellow researchers and artists in the collaborative project Urban Ecologies, where Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, is generated from.


Polyvocal Tongue The presentation will focus on relational ethics and polyvocality in performative text. It will also explore the use of plural languages in a play, looking at how a polylingual praxis can open up new aesthetic potential in playwrighting and in artistic research in general.


TRANSPOSITIONS— JAR, Mette Edvardsen and modular diaries At the start, the idea for an artistic research conversation with Mette Edvardsen did not spring out of the topics shortlisted for the conference—hospitality, vulnerability and care—but a book that she had co-edited, and dropped in my shelf.

Panel Discussion

The Ethics of Vulnerability and Artistic Research

Any ethical framework must take account of the vulnerability of the human condition. This is significant in all creative endeavours – especially in artistic practice and the teaching of it – since the very act of creating something and putting it out into the world is an expression of vulnerability.
