D’Lo in D’FunQT for only 9 shows in April in L.A.

Greetings Everyone,

I’m so PROUD to share that my solo stand-up/storytelling show D’FunQT is going up at the LGBT Center in West Hollywood and I would LOVE for you to be there. It is a small theater (about 50 seats) so I strongly urge you all to buy your tickets online as soon as you can!

Working with the LGBT Center has been wonderful and I cannot express my gratitude for the lengths that they have gone through to ensure that my work gets the support that it needs, and deserves. I started my relationship with the center through different arts programming, but my relationship with Jon Imparato, the Artistic Director, started with the work I did with my colleague and brilliant sister, Adelina Anthony. Through the LGBT Center, I’ve also been granted the opportunity to work with award-winning director Ken Sawyer for this LA premiere. He has transformed this piece into the magic that it is at present.
I feel blessed to have this opportunity and I am truly excited to be back in LA sharing a new iteration of this show with you all after it’s international tour in 2012/2013.

Come and bring your friends, we’re gonna have a good good time!

Much love to you all, D’Lo

And here is a video of the beginning of the journey!!!

D’FunQT by D’Lo (9 Shows) directed by Ken SawyerTrying to chronicle the journey of D’FunQT Los Angeles LGBT Center for select dates in April. More info here. I forgot that it wasn’t a NPN contract and that TeAda Productions also produced a run of a solo show of mine (Ramble-Ations) in 2010, so my bad!

 

D’FunQT

(pronounced “Defunct”)

No matter how free we think we are, fierce queers and folks of color are being challenged daily in merely surviving; fighting against being defunct.

Defunct (dih-fuhngkt):

no longer operative or valid no longer in effect or use; not operating or functioning having ceased to exist or live; dead

D’FunQT (pronounced defunct) is filled with D’Lo’s humorous musings, rants and stories of being a queer boy/stud/transgendered person who grew up in a strict immigrant family, trying to make it all work peacefully while radically and bizarrely challenging mindframes in choosing to exist unapologetically.

This show is my gift to the communities I identify with: Fierce Folks of Color, Queers, QT’s and yes, Islanders. I want to give my people a break. A moment to exhale in peace, To celebrate in laughter, To feel accepted in all your glory amongst other good people.
