Looking for Tiger Lily
NEW ENGLAND EXCLUSIVE
In a hilarious send-up of stereotypes, a performance artist reckons with their own Native American heritage.
“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 their own Native American heritage through a hilariously pointed sendup of stereotypes in an autobiographical solo show. Incorporating video and dance, and invoking their queer drag clown persona, “Carla Rossi,” they draw 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.
