On Sunday, April 20, Sunday Sessions presents The Masters Ball, a celebration of the history and pedagogy of New York City’s house and ballroom scene. The ball foregrounds twined notions of mastery—namely, virtuosic artistry and the labors of teaching and learning—while engaging with the history of the ballroom community, for to walk the runway is to engage a tradition and announce terms for the ongoing project of the community. The dialogue between runway and community, unlike the conventions that govern most relationships between performance and audience, weaves a thread of debate, influence, and inspiration that is the living memory of the scene.
