Cuenca expats have their own version of a solstice celebration, typically highlighted in the Ecuadorian Andes by indigenous dances and dramatic skits celebrating the fertility of the land.
It’s the presentation this week of “La Maison Derriere,” playing Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights at Fishbon del Sur at Mariscal Sucre 14-15.
Presented by Paul Marquis and Particular Show, the production is a collaborative effort of the Cuencano and expat theater to celebrate Gay Pride Month, which ends this weekend. It is also an opportunity to be introduce the very talented, up and coming, writer/director Heran Patino and a diverse group of artist and artisans working together to benefit Frank Angelo and his Cuban family.
Drag Queen Theater is a new art form, more lusty than bawdy, that keeps the laughs, and traditional drag elements intact, while delivering a more complex and insightful message of uninhibited lifestyles full of grace, love, and a deep commitment to our most cherished treasures: family and friends.
Approved by Ecuador’s Ministerio de Cultura for its artistic, multi-cultural, and LGBTQ relevance, La Maison Derriere is a show not to be missed. Tickets are still available but are going fast (contact email@example.com).
There is an opening act, as well.
