D'Lo will perform in the inaugural "Morphologies: Queer Performance Festival."
First Robert Karimi's cooking show, "Viva La Soul Power!," hotted up Intermedia Arts. Now the venue in Minneapolis' Lyn-Lake neighborhood is part of "Morphologies: Queer Performance Festival."
A result of the collaboration between Pangea World Theater, founded by Dipankar Mukherjee, and 20% Theatre Company, headed by Claire Avitabile, “Morphologies" features Twin Cities and national acts.
It kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Friday, and goes through Nov. 19.
Here is the line-up:
*“Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps,” created and performed by transgender performing artist Scott Turner Schofield. Self-described as “a man who was a woman, a lesbian turned straight guy who is often called a fag,” Schofield lets the audience choose the stories that will be told. (Nov. 9-10, Ritz Theater, 345 13th Av. NE, Mpls.)
*The Loud and Queer cabaret, featuring poetry, dance, performance art, burlesque and music. (Nov. 11, Bryant-Lake Bowl, 810 W. Lake St., Mpls.)
*”Seasonal Velocities,” created and performed by poet and essayist Ryka Aoki. The show excerpts stories from her book of the same name. (Nov. 12, Bryant-Lake Bowl, 810 W. Lake St., Mpls).
*”D’FUNQT,” created and delivered by MTV performance poet D’Lo, a Tamil/Sri Lankan-American activist and provacateur. (Nov. 14-15, Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Av. S., Mpls.)
*”Outside The Circle,” a play written and performed by Andrea Assaf and Samuel Valdez. The experimental play revolves around a straight man with cerebral palsy and his queer female friend as they recount their shared woes in the art of seduction. (Nov. 16-17, Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Av. S., Mpls.)
*”Shaking Our Shells: Stories from On the Wings of Wadaduga,” a history-based show about “Cherokee…GLBTQ memories” written and performed by Qwo-Li Driskill.
