Seth (he/him) is a San Francisco-based artist who engages LGBTQ+ history as a living, breathing dialogue by researching lost legacies. His work recaptures queer stories and traditions erased from historical records to create a lasting body of evidence. Blurring the edge between art, research and activism he creates a hybrid of visual art and live performance that combines physical theater, dance, puppetry, drag, circus, installation and video. In 2007 he founded the ensemble-based company Eye Zen Presents that unearths and elevates the lost histories of queer ancestors. Our 2018 premiere of OUT of Site takes queer history into the streets in a series of performance-driven walking tours spanning 267 years which make the connections between the people and the sites where histories took place, bringing them to life in interactive, site-responsive events around San Francisco.
