We invite you to join us at the crossroads for a night of conjuring, memory, mourning and celebration. Through elegies of story, song, dance, drag and more, we will honor our erased, fallen and slain queer and trans people of color family lost to hate crimes, war, colonization, and genocide. We will celebrate our queer legacies and the ways we've found to survive through the beautiful resistance of memory, and whisper stories about grief, loss, healing, sweet darkness, and walking between worlds towards rebirth. Promising to be heartfelt, smart, provocative, humorous, and touching, Beloved is sure to explore the many faces of death, mourning and loss from the dark to the jubilant.

You are encouraged to bring offerings, trinkets, photos, and remembrances for the shared altar we will build.

And bring your dancing shoes too, for the dance party that will follow. Because yes! It is our duty to love and celebrate the miracle of our bodies and our living, as much as we may grieve and mourn for our dying.

Mangos With Chili is a nationally touring, Bay Area based arts incubator committed to showcasing high quality performance of life saving importance by queer and trans artists of color to audiences in the Bay Area and beyond. Our goal is to produce high-quality multi-genre performances reflecting the lives and stories of queer and trans people of color (QTPOC) and speaking out in resistance to the daily struggles around silence, isolation, homophobia and violence that QTPOC face. Mangos With Chili's multi-genre productions present work in the disciplines of dance, theater, vaudeville, spoken word, hip-hop, circus arts, music, film, and more.

Founded in 2006 by Cherry Galette and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Mangos With Chili began as an annual touring cabaret of queer and trans people of color performance artists, with the goal of creating a cultural institution that would build the careers and visibility of QTPOC artists. Since inception, Mangos With Chili has developed the work of over 125 queer artists of color, produced four national tours and curated an annual season of Bay Area programming.

Mangos With Chili is a fiscally sponsored project of CounterPULSE.www.counterpulse.org
