Catalina La O Presenta: Now With Me

Hosted by Queer Arts Festival / SUM Gallery

Location

Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mews, Vancouver, BC, V6Z 2W3, Canada

A clown show. A protest. A cabaret. Winner of the 2020 Vancouver Fringe New Play Prize, Catalina La O explores the life of khattieQ and of female Puerto Rican singing legends Myrta Silva and Ruth Fernández. The ravages of a storm have forced her to take shelter in an abandoned television studio. None of her live audience has arrived, but she broadcasts her show to the millions of viewers she hopes are watching. Created by the duo jk jk (khattieQ, musician/performer; Jenny Larson-Quiñones, director/writer), Catalina La O is a piece for the queer communities, a piece for the colonized body, a piece for Puerto Rico, a piece for anyone who has experienced heartbreak.

The Pride in Art Society (PiA) produces, presents and exhibits with a curatorial vision favouring challenging, thought-provoking work that pushes boundaries and initiates dialogue, including through the Queer Arts Festival (QAF), an annual, professional, artist-run, multidisciplinary festival and SUM Gallery. PiA brings diverse communities together to support artistic risk-taking, incite creative collaboration and experimentation and celebrate the rich heritage of queer artists and art. We harness the visceral power of the arts to inspire recognition, respect and visibility of people who transgress gender and sexual norms.
