Looking for Tiger Lily


Join us for an open­ing act host­ed by drag queen Jay­lene Tyme fea­tur­ing the tal­ents of bur­lesque dancer Rain­bowGlitz and more!

Star­ring Antho­ny Hud­son – the human ves­sel for Portland’s pre­miere drag clown Car­la Rossi – LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY uti­lizes song, dance, drag, and video to put a queer spin on the ances­tral tra­di­tion of sto­ry­telling. Ask­ing what it means for a queer mixed Native per­son to expe­ri­ence their her­itage through white nor­ma­tive cul­ture as they recount grow­ing up watch­ing the 1960 pro­duc­tion of “Peter Pan” fea­tur­ing Son­dra Lee’s blonde, blue-eyed “Indi­an Princess” Tiger Lily, Antho­ny (and Car­la) draw from a song­book stretch­ing across Disney’s “Poc­a­hon­tas” to Cher’s “Half-Breed.” Not just auto­bi­og­ra­phy, LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY is a com­ing-of-age sto­ry that’s more than cow­boys ver­sus Indians.
