Storytelling Experimental New work Minnesota premiere

20% Theatre Company Twin Cities presents Q-STAGE: an experimental series dedicated to providing a stage for queer artists and performance-makers to showcase new work. 

SET "B" FEATURES:

"TRANS*GRRRESSIVAS REVOLUCIONARIAS" 
Written & Performed by Rica de la Concha

Facing so much unbridled destruction on the island and in the diaspora, a Puerto Rican organizer turns her attention to radical, gender transgressive, revolutionaries of the past for inspiration, connection, and guidance. Invoking the spirits of anarchist labor organizer Louisa Capetillo and trans revolutionary Sylvia Rivera, Rica de la Concha explores humanizing and haunting moments of organizing in liberation movements. Part meditation, part ancestral work, Rica de la Concha traverses time and the spirits of unique Boricuas to explore stories of shared tactics, principles, struggles, revelations, and patterns in our historic call to fight for a better world. 

--AND--

"THE LAST RESORT"
Created & Performed by Addison Sharpe
Directed by Chantal Pavageaux

The Last Guest at The Last Resort passes the time basking in the desert sun, sipping sparkling refreshments and lauding the patron saint of pool-side glamour, Micheline Bernardini, the first woman to model the bikini swimsuit. But the desert oasis may prove to be a fragile mirage as the Last Guest is forced to recon with the repercussions of living in lavishness. In their most ambitious stage project to date, Addison Sharpe navigates a world of sex, kitsch, fallout and the bewildering spectacle of the Atomic Age.
