Jody Kuehner/Cherdonna Shinatra: Kissing Like Babies
October 12 @ 8:00 pm - October 15 @ 5:00 pm
Explore the infantilization of the feminine. Embroil in the conundrum of being. Gape at the amazing circumstances within which we exist. Trace the ties from birth to death and back again with the help of drag queen Cherdonna, a chorus of adult toddlers, and a seven-piece brass marching band. Jody Kuehner is a queer, fem, female, professionally trained contemporary dancer who uses dance traditions, clowning, drag, theater, comedy, performance art, camp, pop culture, feminism, absurdity, and subversive commentary to make art.
Jody Kuehner is a Seattle-based dance artist, director, and drag queen Cherdonna Shinatra.
