***Mangos With Chili: the floating cabaret of queer and trans people of
color bliss, dreams sweat, sweets and nightmares, is two weeks of
history-making performance by 9 queer and trans of color artists working
in spoken word, theater, drag, dance and burlesque. Our work celebrates our
lives, stories and survival, the histories we are making and the legacies
we are leaving our children.

Inspired by similar traveling roadshows like the Tranny Roadshow and the
Sex Workers Art Show, in 2006 sister femme vixen writers and performance
artists Maria Cristina Rangel and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha decided
to start a similar tour featuring the most brilliant queer and trans
artists of color they knew, using their experience creating events in
Toronto, Boston, New York and the West Coast.

Telling stories of survival, sex, dreams, magic, color, and trans, femme
and genderqueer identities reaching from Sri Lanka to Aztlan to Morocco to
the Philippines to the Caribbean to Brooklyn to migrant small town
Washington state, Mangos With Chili is a groundbreaking performance
cabaret, taking This Bridge Called My Back into the 21st century.
