Mangos With Chili: Behind the Music
The new Qcc East Bay Presenting Series, @ La Peña! kicks off with:
Mangos With Chili: Behind the Music, A 5 Year Retrospective.
Like Behind the Music but so much better, this evening offers a first hand glimpse into the making, growth and evolution of Mangos With Chili, North America's floating cabaret of queer and trans people of color performance artists. Featuring Co-Directors Cherry Galette and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha and artists from our first 5 years, this event will be part celebration, part birthday party, and part talk show featuring facilitated Q&A, video diaries from former Mangos artists, and teasers from our upcoming 2012 season, including our upcoming National Queer Arts Festival production, "Reclaiming the Rites," in June 2012, and our 5 year anniversary "Resurrection" tour.
And as always, come for the interactive community femmeifest/manifest altar, lovenotes, and cupcakes!
