NOGA YECHIELI WIND & JOSHUA RIVAS – Red and Boiling
January 26 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm$20.00 - $25.00
Lesbians gone rogue! Queer activists, Noga Yechieli Wind and Joshua Rivas flip the narrative by telling real stories from the mouths of our people. The explosive theatrical performance Red and Boiling, is based on hours of interviews with queer womyn and non-binary individuals from different countries, religions, ethnicities and ages. Combining drag, shadow puppetry, and the testimonies shared verbatim, this duo will take you on an interactive journey you won’t forget.
Too often the narratives told of queer womyn have focused solely on the act of coming out. But what are our stories beyond that? The Hasadick, Noga’s drag king persona, Comes to life with a luscious beard to bring these stories out of the shadows and bridge our global community. After a successful international premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Noga and Josh are excited to share these stories at home with their Los Angeles community.
Red and Boiling is an unforgettable experience where you are both a witness, and a participant. Come laugh, celebrate and rediscover your identity with us!
