Legendary Children is the latest work by STEAMROLLER Dance Company that explores and explodes contemporary notions of queerness. Set on the penultimate disco dance floor, Legendary Children explores Queer lineage both historical and personal using recorded interviews that are interwoven throughout the performance. Dances that explore the essentiality of queerness set to the music of contemporary queer artists such as Matmos, Bright Light, Bright Light and Jimmy Somerville bump up against the interviews to look at what, if any are the differences between queer bodies and straight bodies and at the body as a site of queer pleasure, queer sorrow and queer resistance

In 1993, a loosely knit group of artists came together to create guerrilla performances to address the spread of HIV/AIDS to other communities (women, people of color). The company is currently under the direction of founding member, Jesselito Bie, tIn addition to various SF parking lots, STEAMROLLER has also presented work in the Bay Area Dance Festival, the 1996-200 In the Street Festivals, the 1996-2001 San Francisco Lesbian and Gay Dance Festivals, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Festival of Bay Area Dance, Asian American Dance Performances and Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica.


Jesselito Bie moved to the Bay Area in 1992 to dance with the High Risk Group and has since performed with many local companies such as Scott Wells and Dancers,Stephen Pelon Dance Company, Cid Perlman/Nesting Dolls, Kulintang Arts and Erika Shurch Performance Project. He has also received awards for his choreography from the SF Bay Guardian, the 360 Award from CSUEB for all around Outstanding and Outrageous Queer Dance Work and the Tobie from Bay Area Dance Watch for Best Male Solo. He was also a recent participant in ODC Theater's Sandbox residency program.
