Philadelphia’s Bearded Ladies Cabaret has some treats for you. Do You Want A Cookie? transforms an old factory to concoct the perfect cabaret confections to satisfy your cravings.

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.

Art Exhibition Opening for Native Icon/biography

Art Exhibition Opening for Native Icon/biography

Native Icon/biography; The art of Priscilla Anacakuyani & Daniel de Jesús

Opening Reception April 6, 2018 6pm - 9pm

Higher Grounds Café

631 N 3rd St, Philadelphia, PA 19123

Native Icon/Biography is an exhibition of works by artists Priscilla Anakacuyani Bell and Daniel de Jesús. Both
artists are of Puerto Rican Heritage and from the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia PA. Anakacuyani and de Jesús both work with the figure as icon or symbol that often explores identity that stems from their Latinx Heritage.

Anakacuyani’s work dives into the world of Taino traditions. She often tries to visually personify the connection she has with her Taíno Heritage and through symbolism and mysticism of the Taino peoples who inhabited the Caribbean. She visually communicates an understanding of ancient rituals and a devotion to ancestors within the genre of portraiture.

de Jesús’ work explores religious iconography that is inspired by Puerto Rico's colonial era. Such iconography that inspires de Jesús’ work comes from Puerto Rico's Espada workshop, which produced small brightly colored religious statuary (Santos). The art of Puerto Rican painter José Campeche and his Rococo styled religious paintings with fine handwork and brightly colored Madonna's has also provided much inspiration for the artist's style and subject.

Both artists are also acrylic painters, masters in their own right in a medium still quite modern in the world of paints. Acrylic as a paint medium has its roots in the mural art of Latin America, but here, it is used in a jewel-like fashion, utilizing an application more like an oil painter and taking advantage of the medium's ability to build light and expose the underpainting to full effect.

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.
