Lu Donovan (they/them) is a dancer, educator, and organizer living in Philadelphia. Their work prioritizes indulgence and researches strategies of queer-ing the mundane. Their pandemic-practice has sat them within the four walls of their bedroom, combining dear diary entries with...just trying to feel sensation. They have shown original pieces at the Icebox Project Space, Fringe Arts, Headlong, as well as self-produced pieces in fields, basements, and apartments across the city. They participated in the Headlong Performance Institute in 2018 and received a BA from Wesleyan University. Beyond-- Lu plays around with embroidery, crocheting, cooking, singing, and light sport games in Clark Park.
