Performing for the opening of "In the name of... " An art exhibition curated by Richard Morales

This exhibit grows out of the belief that art dismantles stereotypes and builds connections. Each artist in this exhibit helps shed light on different stories from the frontlines of their lives and those close to them. Intimacy, social criticism, civic empowerment, and cultural celebration are just a few of the threads running through the works. These queer artists from New York, Latin America, and the Caribbean thus use their art to spur thought, encourage self-expression, and catalyze social transformation.

A night not to be missed, featuring a wild array of characters and costumes, anchored by the inimitable Martha Graham Cracker and her band, with oodles of donated goodies and experiences that keep us making the work you love. 

Our 2018 benefit is happening on Friday, February 2nd.  Let's Make a SQUEAL! will transform the historic Trocadero Theatre into game show paradise for an evening of crazy contestants, deals behind doors, hot hosts, vowels, whammies, and zonks, all in the name of raising funds to support Pig Iron.

  • Google Calendar ICS

I am so excited to be part of Pig Iron Theater's Period of Animate Existence. Please click on the link below get your tickets to see this amazing piece of experimental theater as part of the Fringe Festival in Philadelphia. visit the Fringe Festival website for tickets, schedule of performances and times. 

http://fringearts.com/event/period-animate-existence/

We find ourselves in a perilous time, one that is being called the Sixth Extinction, an era in which we foresee the loss of 20% to 50% of all living species on earth. The gravity of these issues has entered mainstream consciousness, affecting our politics, media, and ultimately our individual beliefs about the trajectory of life.

 

How do we contemplate the future in such a moment?

 

A Period of Animate Existence is an inquiry into this great disruption. What is this effort for life to go on living: the language used by one generation to address another; the difference between the animate and the inanimate; and the visceral feeling that the force of life itself – what Henri Bergson called “the élan vital” – permeates our notions of minerals, plants, animals, people, and time.

Opening for Carla Morrison @ Latin Roots Live FREE Concert

Opening for Carla Morrison @ Latin Roots Live FREE Concert

Mexican singer-songwriter Carla Morrison is playing the next Latin Roots Live! free concert on Tuesday, October 4th at World Cafe Live. Having started as a true DIY artist, playing the Tijuana underground music scene - with a keyboard, guitar, & loop machine in tow - she first charmed her way into our hearts with her raw remake of Manu Chao's "La Despedida". Soon after, she became a household name with the release of her bittersweet hit single, "Compartir". A few years, and a couple of Latin Grammy awards later, she has amplified her sound into realms we can humbly call 'Rock Star Status'. She regularly performs to dozens of thousands of fans all across Mexico and has gained fans from all across the globe. Her latest album, 'Amor Supremo', has garnered tons of critics' acclaim, earning her comparisons to mainstream artists like Lana Del Rey, Sia, and Adele. She is easily regarded as one of Latin music’s leading independent artists, and this October, Philadelphia will understand why. We are truly blessed to present this incredible artist as part of our Latin Roots Live series (with our partners WXPN), and to finally produce her 1st ever concert here in the City of Brotherly Love.
The all-ages show is being held in Philadelphia at World Cafe Live (3025 Walnut Street) Philadelphia.
Doors are at 7:00 pm; Showtime is 8:00 – 10:30 pm.
Admission is free, however, an RSVP is required.
Go to www.latinroots.org to get your FREE TICKETS NOW!
