The News is the new place to see fresh, queer performance by Bay Area artists. On the first Tuesday of each month The Newswill 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.
The March edition of The News features Meliza Bañales, Lynnee Breedlove, Annie Danger, Bill Hsu, LOVEWARZ! and Margaret Tedesco, as well as hosting guest curators Gary Fembot and Malcolm Hamilton. Fembot and Hamilton, who formerly produced and co-hosted the radio show “Fembot & Friends” on KUSF in Exile, bring an evening of performance, spoken word, film and music inspired by the spirit of their show to The News at SOMArts.
