Cherdonna Shinatra: DITCH

Let's meet at Cafe Frieda in the Frye Art Museum for a bite from 1 p.m. to 1:45 p.m., and then see a free performance of Cherdonna Shinatra: DITCH at 2 p.m..

Seattle-based dance artist Jody Kuehner skewers social and cultural norms of gender and sexuality through her persona and alter ego Cherdonna Shinatra. Combining contemporary dance, drag, clowning, and the traditions of feminist and queer performance, Cherdonna defies categorization to dismantle the patriarchy and seek more liberated ways of being. DITCH will mark Kuehner’s most complex and demanding production to date, taking the form of an immersive installation that includes daily performances by Cherdonna with members of her newly formed dance company, DONNA. Over the course of eighty performances, Cherdonna—clad in an outfit reminiscent of Pierrot the clown—and her six companions will grapple with the dismal state of the world by undertaking her greatest challenge yet: making every single person happy.

RSVP and Host: Requested by February 22 to Mary Solbrig ’11
