NimbusPRESENTS: Stage Door Series Thrive -with Arthur Aviles, Felix Rodriguez and Dr. Edgar Rivera Colon
NimbusPRESENTS: Stage Door Series Thrive will bring together two important scholar/writers of the uptown and Harlem Ball scenes. Edgar Rivera Colon and Felix Rodriguez will converse, recite, reminisce and share rare video footage of an underground culture only recently reemerged in the broader public eye in the FX television series, Pose.
Our scholars will not only compare notes they are also invited to express themselves as creative beings. Each will recite their own prose inspired from the culture that make up these communities.
As to make sure this scholarly process is not just a stepped back voyeuristic affair, we invite the audience to show up, not just as audience members who will sit back but also as responders to the discussion with their own questions prose and yes dance.
Bringing your own beats to walk the runway! Yassss!!! Disco ball, runway and beats will be all the rage at the NimbusPRESENTS: Stage Door Series Thrive.
This event is co-presented by Hudson Pride Center and made possible in part by a generous grant from the New Jersey Council on the Humanities
