Starting simply, Josie Quick creates her own string orchestra with a single electric violin. With the use of live looping she can sound like a blues band, other times like an African marimba ensemble. Her wide musical influences and various techniques create an ocean of sound, providing the perfect accompaniment to her spontaneous improvisations.

Classic Film Series- He’s a Lady: A Brief History of Drag in Film- Kinky Boots (2005)

Film
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
B2 Conference Room

Fresh City Life explores the role of male drag and crossdressing in films. Much like classic cabaret drag queens, these films represent one thing on the surface and, for those willing to look for it, reveal so much more through subtext and innuendo. Underneath the makeup and the theatrical dressing and the sharp-tongued rejoinders, there is humanity and understanding and compassion. But there are also laughs. There must always be laughs.
