Hi, and thanks for visiting The Ms. TangTang Show project page.
WHAT IS The Ms. TangTang Show?
The Ms. TangTang Show is a live variety talk-show focusing on exhibiting, promoting and sustaining the innovative work of Queer Asian-American artists. We want to see smart work that is at once unique and cutting-edge, yet still relevant to our community’s deeply woven histories. We want to talk with those artists who break down the boxes and bridge various genres, generations and practices. The Ms. TangTang Show will be an engaging and intelligent spotlight that promotes Queer Asian American creativity in a fun and entertaining way.
The Ms. TangTang Show will premiere on June 23, 2011 at the Buriel Clay Theater in the African American Arts and Culture Complex in San Francisco, CA. It is a co-presentation of the Queer Cultural Center's 14th Annual National Queer Arts Festival and the API Cultural Center's 14th Annual United States of Asian America Festival.
Hosted by Tita Aida and featuring artists D'Lo, Kit Yan, Philip Huang, SKIM, Mia Nakano, Jai Arun Ravine and more.
HOW IT WILL WORK:
Performers, musicians, film and video makers, writers and practitioners in multi-disciplinary arts are invited to “appear” on the show, talk with our humorous and inciteful host, Ms. TangTang, and perform for a live studio audience. The show will also be “aired” live online to create a broader reach for the featured artists and, ultimately, for Queer Asian America.
The theater turned TV-studio will provide a fun and welcoming space for discussion, art and good times. Viewers can get to know the artists and their work from the casual yet informative conversations with Ms. TangTang. Then, they will witness the live performances, videos or presentations. There will also be audience participation and prizes as Ms. TangTang fires out quizzes on Queer Asian American activism and pop culture.
All in all, we hope to provide viewers with a healthy dose of inspiring Queer Asian American art, an understanding of the work that they’ve experienced and LOL memories of their time with Ms. TangTang.
WHAT YOUR DONATION WILL GO TOWARDS:
All of the donations from this Kickstarter campaign will be used to compensate the artists, cast and crew in our show, the work that they do and their commitment to advancing Queer Asian American arts.
