Mangos with Chili Queer Borderlands Tour 2008: SF Bay Area kickoff on October 10, 2008

Ms. Cherry Gallete sent me a notice that she is producing a show that will be touring, and the first stops are in SF and Oakland! The first show is later today!

Mangos With Chili Queer Borderlands Tour 2008 Kicks off in SF on 10/10!

Mangos with Chili, the floating cabaret of queer and trans people of color bliss, dreams, sweat, sweets & nightmares, is pleased to announce the Bay Area kick off of our 2008 Queer Borderlands Tour.

Launching on Columbus Day weekend in resistance to the legacy of imperialism and colonization reflected by the commemoration of the holiday, Mangos with Chili will present two evenings of unforgettable and history-making performance in both San Francisco and Oakland. The show will feature new work in the genres of dance, vaudeville, poetry, spoken word, theater, burlesque, performance memoir, and hip hop addressing the themes of border transgressions, migrations, deportations, relocation, displacement, legacy and the struggle to create new worlds, and in celebration of queer lives, stories, and the legacies we are creating for future generations of queer and trans people of color.

Hosted by history making burlesque sensation SIMONE DE LA GETTO!
