Catalina La O Presenta:

Now With Me

Thu Jun 23 | 7pm
Sat Jun 25 | 2pm 

Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre Performance Centre – 181 Roundhouse Mews

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 queer communities, a piece for the colonized body, a piece for Puerto Rico, and a piece for anyone who has experienced heartbreak.

This event is ASL interpreted.
