Fox Whitney

Fox Whitney’s queer black mixed transgender point of view is at the heart of his performance project, Gender Tender. GT engages a team of artists trained in Fox’s unique methods modeled on visual art practices, cults and riots. He is also a filmmaker, actor, dancer and teaching artist. Melted Riot, a Gender Tender performance inspired by the Stonewall Riots of 1969, was presented at Velocity Dance Center on the 50th anniversary of the uprising. His work has been commissioned and produced by the Henry Art Gallery, On the Board’s NW New Works Festival and Solo Festival; Velocity’s Next Fest NW and Seattle Festival of Dance Improvisation; the Seattle International Dance Festival; Yellow Fish Epic Durational Performance Festival and was selected for the inaugural season of Seattle’s Gay CIty Arts. He has performed in work by keyon gaskin, Morgan Thorson, CommonForm Dance Project, Malic Amalya and Gabrielle Civil and has exhibited his dance films and visual art nationally. He is currently an artist in residence at On the Boards in Seattle and Velocity’s Interim Artistic Director.
