FakeKnot creates inclusive performance works that strive to understand the complexities of identity and culture through costume, sound, technology and the body. Artistic director Ralph Escamillan gather his breath of experience as a dancer in street, commercial and contemporary dance to create a truly unique choreographic perspective, while also questioning his identity as a queer person of color thought his work. All FakeKnot’s work focus on a highly collaborative process with past collaborators including New media artist Sammy Chien and Nancy Lee, Sound designer Stefan Seslija, and local brands Lululemon Lab and Five Left Leather. The idea behind this focus on collaborative work is Ralphs interest in finding ways to intersects the worlds he comes from, using his work in FakeKnot as the vessel for this discourse.
