Pepper with Pocha Nostra in SF July 26-Aug 4

Next-Workshop2-420x280.jpg

Calling all artists! SOMArts is thrilled to announce a new partnership with La Pocha Nostra, collaborative production company of the legendary Guillermo Gomez Peña. This year, members of La Pocha Nostra will host one of their  international performance workshops at SOMArts. 

As LPN’s largest project in San Francisco this year, this workshop is geared for all artists interested in exploring the concept of the “city in ruins” and artist-driven responses to the politics of urban land-use. Workshop exercises will focus on the human body in relation to the built environment and architecture and involve the creation of interactive, performance installations inspired by the workshop’s themes. The results of this 10-day pedagogical experiment will culminate in a two-day public presentation featuring work by workshop participants. 

Applications to participate in the performance workshop and culminating festival are available now. Click here to learn more and submit your application by Monday, June 18.

Pepper Presents: Drag Queen Tag Team! A Non-Stop Drag Improv and Lipsynch Performance. 

June 19th Tuesday 6pm-9pm

NO COVER!!!

The Alberta Street Pub 1036 NE Alberta

Hosted by Pepper Pepper
With Special Guests Loretta Good Lordchild and Kel Dae

Drag Queen Tag Team's idea is simple. 

We press play on a very special playlist, and then don't stop. For the duration of the performance there must be someone "performing" at all times. Audience members determine the constraints and improv games each queen must perform with during each number. Audience members have a chance to "tag in" and lipsynch their favorite songs! It's weird, it's messy, it's an experiment and I KNOW YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT! 

Bring a friend, IT'S FREE! All your tips go to support the guest queens performances!

Queer Horror June 21st w/ Pepper Pepper

32116771_10215870569133417_1010949900348686336_o.jpg

The Hollywood Theatre's bimonthly program QUEER HORROR takes its love for scary movies one step too far with SCREAM! Sponsored by Royale Brewing Company, this special Pride screening puts Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi in Drew Barrymore’s shoes – and ribbed sweater – with the unstoppable Pepper Pepper (as ???) in a pre-show tribute to the ‘90s slasher classic!

Directed by Wes Craven and written by out queer screenwriter Kevin Williamson, 1996’s SCREAM follows final girl Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) as a ghost-faced killer knocks off her friends one by one – and the only way to survive this real-life scary movie is to know the rules! Featuring Courtney Cox, Rose McGowan, David Arquette, and Drew Barrymore in one of the most iconic opening scenes of all time, SCREAM completely altered the course of millennial horror – inspiring its own franchise, TV series, and decades of imitators – and continued a century-long legacy of queer filmmakers shaping the cultural consciousness of an entire film genre with gleeful wit and buckets of blood.

Thursday, June 21st at 9:30 PM | SOLD OUT

ABOUT QUEER HORROR:

QUEER HORROR is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers questioning horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities. 

From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why. QUEER HORROR is programmed and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and her human avatar Anthony Hudson, with artwork by resident artist Jason Edward Davis.

Diva Practice (Lecture)(Solo)(Workshop) at OSU Cascades!

30571463_582276435472018_523352901867798528_n.jpg

As part of Diversity Week, OSU-Cascades is bringing Portland-based performance artist Kaj-anne Pepper to Bend to explore the intersections of dance, drag, and gender with "Diva Practice."

Diva Practice (Solo) is a dynamic, whimsical and confronting performance about drag queens dancing with uncertainty performed by and choreographed by Pepper Pepper.

Diva Practice (Solo) is a journey into the role of the "soloist" through multi-media projection, dance and drag. Beautifully chaotic and charming, Pepper peels back the psyche and archetype of “diva” in an exploration that is engaging, conceptual and sometimes hysterical.

Pepper Pepper will perform a selection from Diva Practice followed by a Q&A with the audience in Tykeson Hall, Room 111. This event is free and open to the public. Pepper Pepper will also hold an interactive Diva Practice workshop at 3:30 pm. Please RSVP for both events here:http://osucascades.edu/webform/diversity-week-queer-drag-history-dance-workshop-and-diva-practice-registration-form

Object Karaoke Hand2Mouth Theatre

28061222_10155117114865636_4512560953660839045_o-1.jpg

Object Karaoke is a new performance inspired by nine objects fabricated by local makers for Artists Rep's 2016-17 season. This winter, under the direction of Julie Hammond and with dramaturgy from Jen Mitas, performers Liz Hayden, Erin Leddy, Kajanne Pepper and Ken Yoshikawa plus musician EMA (Erika Anderson) have been getting acquainted with three hats, a drape, three hand-dyed fabrics, a dress, and a piano harp -- learning their swan songs and backstories and finding ways to bring out their fiercest thing-power. In a special one night only performance the results of these explorations will be presented back at Artists Rep. Humans and non-humans alike are invited to gather and witness this experiment in the magic of objects and their creative reuse. 

This event is part of STAGEICRAFT, an initiative, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and administered by Theatre Communications Group, that aims to bridge the gap between Portland’s creative communities by integrating local Makers, their products and their passions into the art and theater community.

Artists Repertory Theatre, in collaboration with Hand2Mouth andDISJECTA, is a participant in the Audience (R)Evolution Cohort Grants program, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and administered by Theatre Communications Group, the national organization for the professional not-for-profit American theatre.

Open Signal and RACC are kicking off the 2017-2018 season of Night Lights with a special presentation of new work by this year’s jury-selected Night Lights artists.

Get a taste of the innovative digital pieces you can expect to see at the First Thursdays of October through April, when the selected artists will showcase their work on the north wall of RACC’s downtown offices, as well as onsite at Open Signal.

After the presentation, you’re invited to share your own work. We’re hosting a Bring Your Own Beamer + Content (BYOB+C) party in Open Signal’s parking lot. You bring the video content, we’ll provide projectors, electricity, wall space, a DJ and refreshments!

About Night Lights:

Currently in its third year, Night Lights is an ongoing collaboration between Open Signal and the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC).
