CALL ME A PUSSY: A Performance by Laura Stokes

July 22, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - July 24, 2022 @ 10:00 pm

$25 – $40

CCA Santa Fe presents the U.S. premiere of the latest performance from award-winning artist, Laura Stokes, with CALL ME A PUSSY. With a sold-out opening weekend, this coming weekend are the final dates at CCA Santa Fe. CCA’s gallery has been transformed into a stage where Stokes will enact an unforgettable performance that is a timely spectacle to behold. CALL ME A PUSSY subverts expectations and untangles stereotypes as Laura Stokes embodies and satirizes eight archetypal characters to challenge sexism, individualism, and nationalism.

Hilarious, poignant, and impactful, CALL ME A PUSSY draws influence from early Burlesque movements with its female-lead political satire in an accessible, entertaining format. With hair suspension, brave characters, acrobatics, and otherworldly body puppetry, this one-woman circus will transport Santa Fe audiences into a world of make-believe and heart-wrenching honesty.

Accompanying her performance will be an exhibition of visual works created in collaboration with artist Kate Russell. The series, SUBVERT, operates as an extension of the themes, characters, and issues explored in the staged show. The collaboration between performer and photographer allows both artists to utilize each other’s skill and artistic mediums to further illustrate the absurdity of capitalism, power structures, and the simple act of being a woman in today’s world. Arrive early as doors open at 7pm to enjoy the SUBVERT exhibition and have a drink from the cash bar by HoneyMoon Brewery, who have designed a signature cocktail of Tepache and Altar Spirits Whiskey exclusively for the show. Showtime begins at 8pm.

This program has been made possible by the Gale Family Foundation.
