When L.A. performance art legend Ron Athey saw sword swallower/activist Missa Blue's piece Black Madonna, he started to think about how an Afrodeutsche sword swallower's expression of pain and sorrow might resonate backdropped by heart-searing vocals, specifically those of local queer Mexican performer San Cha. Then he thought about other talents he knew and how each could contrast and coalesce together in one piece. With help from Nacho Nava (Fingered, Mustache) he put together Dolores: Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, a sure-to-be-provocative, multifaceted performance extravaganza also featuring "torch-core" singer Little Annie, "Discostan" DJ Arshia Fatima Haq and movement performer Austyn Rich. With this astounding cast, expect the sorrow to be both bitter and sweet.
