La Vida Loca

La Vida Loca Start Date: Friday 3/15/2019 — End Date: Saturday 3/16/2019 Admission:$10-$12 An apolitical in-your-face odyssey of a Mexican Immigrant Carlos Manuel’s LA VIDA LOCA, is a monologue stuffed full with life. Carefully constructed to both heroize and expose the author/performer, his “crazy” life is revealed through a crazy quilt of carefully crafted memories, fantasies, dialogues, and excerpts from pop culture. The highly kinetic performance brings the already lively account to a fully form life, charming and occasionally challenging the audience to question their assumptions about ethnic and sexual identity, through the crossing of physical and psychological borders.

Between Beauty & Horror

Between Beauty & Horror Start Date: Friday 2/15/2019 — End Date: Saturday 3/23/2019 Admission:Free The parts of beauty that can feel degrading or the tears that materialize from most wretched joy are some of the ingredients that make up the “between” and are considered to be the binding agents of Beauty & Horror. This short film explores the moments in life that can be difficult to distinguish discomfort and suffering from pleasure; the lived experiences that show up in the shadows of terror only to reveal itself as a gift in disguise. Leila Weefur and Aggregate Space Gallery present Between Beauty & Horror, a video installation exploring the violent, grotesque, and erotic elements of the Black experience. The film, presented as a diptych, uses imagery that engages the senses with the Blackberry fruit as a metaphor for Black being.

What They Said About Love

What They Said About Love Start Date: Saturday 3/2/2019 — End Date: Saturday 3/2/2019 Admission:$10-$12 Steve wonders why other people can and he can’t tie-the-knot, that is. So he asked couples about the push and pull of love—what keeps them from pulling apart despite annoying the heck out of each other. Meet a New Age couple that swears they met before they met, a pair of Metal Heads who thought it would be a hoot to get married on 6-6-06, and more. Satisfy your voyeuristic tendencies about how others look for love—and, in some cases, find it. This is documentary theater at its best, a la Anna Deavere Smith. Steve Budd brings 12 characters to life, using their words from hours of interviews, and weaves in the story of his own search for a life partner.

This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind t… Location: 351 Railroad Ave Pittsburg Contact: Carolyn August info@pittsburgcaliforniatheatre.com URL: http://www/pittsburgcaliforniatheatre.com
