Cherdonna presents Goodnight Cowboy [In-Person Only]
June 9-12 & 16-19 at 8pm

$17 General Admission
$13 NWFF Members


"Goodnight Cowboy" is a performance work that uses iconography from Margaret Wise Brown's children's book "Goodnight Moon" and American western films. Cherdonna explores the myth of the conquest of the west, false heroism, how this heroic event is a construct and a farce filled with melancholy. "Goodnight Cowboy" explores themes of loneliness, isolation, the silliness and limitations of American mythology, and delves into things that seem simple but are complex.
This work asks: What is wildness? What is tamable? What is America's obsession with stereotypical masculinity, the illusion of masculinity, and the performance of masculinity?

** Join us Friday, June 10 for a talk-back with Cherdonna and collaborators following the show! **


Jody Kuehner aka Cherdonna Shinatra uses dance, drag, theater, comedy, camp, pop culture, feminist traditions, absurdity and subversive commentary to make art. Cherdonna is a persona created by Jody to explore and question themselves and the world.

Jody is a 2020 NEFAs National Dance Project finalist, 2017 Artist Trust Fellowship recipient, 2017 Henry Art Gallery Artist in Residence, 2016 NEFAs National Dance Project awardee, and 2015 Stranger Genius Award winner. She has been presented locally at On the Boards, STG, Washington Ensemble Theatre, The Henry Art Gallery, and the Frye Art Museum. She has been presented nationally at the USF in Tampa FL, the Meanings and Makings of Queer Dance in Ann Arbor, MI, The Yard at Marthas Vineyard, American Dance Festival, Durham, NC, and FringeArts in Philadelphia, PA. DITCH, a three-month gallery exhibition, was presented at the Frye Art Museum and at The Momentary in Bentonville, AK. DITCH was featured in ARTnews, i-D Magazine and NBC 12 must-see LGBTQ art shows around the world.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Executive Director Cara Mia Harris at caramia@nwfilmforum.org
