Legendary queer performance artists Marga Gomez and Tim Miller take the stage at USC this week with O SOLO HOMO, a performance of selections of their work. Gomez is a founding member of Culture Clash, and Miller was one of the NEA Four.*
Following the performance, Gomez and Miller will be joined by USC professors David Román and Luis Alfaro for a conversation on queer identities and culture over the last quarter century. Román is the author of Acts of Intervention: Performance, Gay Culture, and AIDS, and the co-editor (with Holly Hughes) of the omnibus O Solo Homo: The New Queer Performance (both 1998). Alfaro is a writer, activist, and creator of such theater works as Electricidad at the Mark Taper Forum, and Oedipus El Rey at Boston Court in Pasadena.
MARGA GOMEZ AND TIM MILLER—O SOLO HOMO, Wednesday, September 6, at 7 pm.
JOYCE C. CAMMILLERI HALL, 3620A McClintock Avenue, USC.
