In Conversation with Anthony Hudson from Looking for Tiger LilyAnthony Hudson
As part of our SpringSeries we are offering free online programming. This artist talk will be available to view live on our Facebook page, and can be viewed on demand at later dates.
Join Anthony Hudson, the creator and performer of Looking For Tiger Lily in conversation with Intrepid’s Co-Artistic Director, Sean Guist. This online artist talk series is a re-imagined digital lobby talk, so feel free to our yourself a Phillips brew, and cue up the online show to watch right after, just like it’s a night out at the theatre! Anthony will discuss the creative process behind creating this personal solo show, and the evolution of Looking For Tiger Lily, which has taken many forms, and the drag clown alter-ego Carla Rossi. This casual conversation between two queer theatre artists will be broadcast on Facebook Live and can be viewed on demand after.
About the artist
ANTHONY HUDSON (Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde) is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, performer, and filmmaker perhaps best known as Portland’s premier drag clown CARLA ROSSI, an immortal trickster whose attempts at realness almost always result in fantastic failure. Together they have been featured at the Portland and Seattle Art Museums, the Vancouver Queer Film Festival, the 2019 Portland Biennial, the Risk/Reward Festival, PICA’s TBA Festival, Melbourne’s Yirramboi Festival, and more, in addition to regularly hosting and programming QUEER HORROR – the only LGBTQ+ horror film screening series in the United States – at the historic Hollywood Theatre. Anthony was named a 2018 National Artist Fellow from the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation, a 2018 Western Arts Alliance Native Launchpad Artist, and a 2019 Oregon Arts Commission Fellow, and has received project support and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, USArtists International, the Oregon Community Foundation, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, the Portland Art Museum & NW Film Center, Ucross Foundation, Caldera Arts Center, and more. Anthony also co-hosts the weekly queer feminist horror podcast Gaylords of Darkness with writer Stacie Ponder. Anthony’s first professionally produced theatrical play, LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY, adapted from Anthony’s solo show of the same name, will make its world premiere at Artists Repertory Theatre.
