Danielle Peers is a queer, disabled video and performance artist from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. For Danielle, video making is a collaborative process of story-sharing and meaning-making, where the aesthetics and politics of the work are derived primarily from, and made primarily for, the communities, (sub)cultures, and bodies of those the work is about.
In each of their videos, Danielle collaborates with artists to collect and create stories that de-naturalize or challenge normalizing stories of gender, disability, sexuality, race, size, class, identity and embodiment.
Danielle’s videos have played at over fifty international film festivals, as well as at local activist, arts and academic events across North America, Europe, and Asia. Festival showings include: Frameline: San Francisco LGBT Film Festival; Out On Screen: Vancouver Queer Film Festival; Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film and Video Festival; Translations: The Seattle Transgender Film Festival; Picture This International Disability Film Festival; Autonomous Spaces (France); Korean Film Festival for Women’s Rights; Global Visions Film Festival (Edmonton); Reelabilities (New York); and Pink Life QueerFest (Turkey).
