The upcoming show at the Moore Theatre is a masterpiece featuring dynamic choreographies, physical expressions, and the free movement of bodies.

Tirrell’s movement practices have inspired and engaged dancers from all over the country, specifically Seattle, Detroit, and many other cities. Over the years, he has continued his advocacy and spread his exemplary work that spread awareness of various issues.
Some of Tirrell’s most notable works include Black Bois, which has been referred to as a “ceremony to ancestors” and “a thanksgiving to our past, present, and future.” Tirrell created Black Bois as a love letter to bodies, spirits, and minds. This exemplary work provides a healing space, a chance to progress, and the opportunity to love. Another notable work is FagGod. The work explores the sanctuaries of the LGBTQIA+ community. With the onset of HIV/Aids, FagGod highlights places like discos/bars, bathhouses, and churches – where many have found their relationship with God.
