On April 7, a local group of queer and trans performance artists will pay tribute to English indie rock group Florence + The Machine. Using the historic Clinton Street Theater’s projection screen as a dynamic backdrop, “Ceremonials” promises a visually-stunning multimedia spectacle.
“Florence + The Machine’s intimate, vulnerable tales of joy and heartache have always resonated with queer audiences,“ producer and host Sugarpill said of the group’s music. “Before becoming a worldwide sensation, Florence Welch performed in London drag bars. Her reverence for our community has intertwined her history with ours, and I can’t wait to celebrate that at the show.”
Sugarpill seeks sponsors to support the show’s expenses and to secure additional payment for the artists involved.
Sponsorship information and $15 tickets to the show are available at sugarpillpdx.com/ceremonials.
Born and raised in Portland, Sugarpill celebrates 10 years of creating and curating drag this September. Sugarpill recently received a grant from Regional Area Arts Council (RACC) to document Portland’s rich history of drag artistry. sugarpillpdx.com
