The News is the new place to see fresh, queer performance by Bay Area artists. On the first Tuesday of each month The News will spotlight performance pieces, experiments, and works in progress by pre-selected solo artists, groups, or troupes. An informal session for artist-led critical feedback follows the performances.

This May The Queer Cultural Center (QCC) collaborates with The News to preview four upcoming shows to be held at various locations as part of the 16th National Queer Arts Festival in June 2013: “GUAVA: Performing African Truths” with Yvonne “Fly” Onakeme Etaghene, “SHAFTED: The Blaqxsploitation Project” with Anthony Julius Williams, “Still Here” with Cristina Mitra and Natalia Vigil, and “Topsy Turvy: A Queer Circus Extravaganza” with Indi McCasey and JD Carmona. For more information about these shows, visit http://www.queerculturalcenter.org.

Creator & host of The News Kolmel WithLove adds to the performer lineup Ryan Rebekah Erev performing with Chane Gilbert, and Lyra Wallace. Kevin Seaman of QCC joins WithLove as the evening’s co-host.

QCC is the fifth of six guest curators enlisted by WithLove to bring fresh performances and curatorial flair to The News in the coming months. Future hosting guest curators include Peter Max Lawrence with Philip Huang on Tuesday, June 4, 2013.
