WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The internationally acclaimed performance artist Tim Miller shares stories of his family trees and the hidden gay histories that live among the branches. Mixing sex and politics, humor and hope, Miller charts the growth of queer citizenship in America and the new challenge of being rooted in resistance to today's Trumped-up political environment.
Rooted is about New York history and Miller's family stories that plant him in the Empire State with stops along the way at a NYC wedding day, a queer history of hurting hearts, the Department of Homeland Security, the DNA roots that lead Miller to central New York, and an '80s power rock epiphany on a NY farm road in Yates County. Rooted is a funny and charged story of the times we are living in.
