This double-billed event will feature an evening of two musical performances starting with Sadonna by Miguel Gutierrez; and followed by Trópico de Covadonga, an appropriation of folklore, myths, and legends of northern Spain through the music of the Asturian queer musician Rodrigo Cuevas.
Sadonna by Miguel Gutierrez at North Beach Bandshell
Apr 15, 2022 8:00 p.m. S
This musical project is precisely what it sounds like: sad versions of Madonna songs. Miguel Gutierrez shows just how tiny the spiritual distance is between the international pop superstar from Bay City, Michigan, and himself, an international experimental multidiscipline artist from Colonia, New Jersey. Backed by the SLUTINOS, the Sad Latino Boys Backup Singers, Sadonna ekes out the melancholy cry for help hidden within Madonna’s uplifting lyrics.
Trópico de Covadonga by Rodrigo Cuevas at North Beach Bandshell
Apr 15, 2022 9:00 p.m.
Rodrigo Cuevas is one of the most unclassifiable artists of the moment. Trópico de Covadonga combines folk and electronic sounds, divaism, humor, elegant eroticism, hedonism, and the celebration of non-negotiable rights. Beautiful contemporary choreographies, staging that combines vintage elements with video projections and a wardrobe that will leave no one indifferent create a formula that everyone would like to clone but that no one, except him, can do.
