Looking for Tiger Lily
NEW ENGLAND EXCLUSIVE
Through songs and stories, a young performance artist hilariously lampoons Native American stereotypes.
“A multiplicity of truths gleaned from personal experience and exploration … courageous, honest and funny.” PQ Monthly
Emerging young Portland, Oregon-based performance artist Anthony Hudson reckons with his own Native American heritage through a hilariously pointed sendup of stereotypes in an autobiographical solo show. Incorporating video and dance, and invoking his queer drag clown persona, “Carla Rossi,” he draws from a songbook stretching from Disney’s Pocahontas to Cher’s Half-Breed—to the infamous blond, blue-eyed Indian “princess” Tiger Lily in the 1960 film Peter Pan.
This engagement is made possible through Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America, a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
