The first iteration of FUTURE MONDAYS, a benefit show series, is TONIGHT!
Each and every Monday, a dazzling array of artists and musicians will grace the Aurora stage to enact a performance which will benefit an organization selected as the chosen beneficiary of the month.
MARCH will benefit Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement!
Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement (Familia: TQLM) is the only national organization that addresses, organizes, educates, and advocates for the issues most important to our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) and Latino communities. Familia: TQLM is inclusive and serves of all LGBTQ Latinos, Latinas, and gender nonconforming individuals. We also collaborate with non-LGBTQ families and friends who support our vision of a united LGBTQ Latino and Latina community.
All FUTURE MONDAY shows are free and open to the public.
So how does it work???
Aurora provides a stipend to the performing artists, and a percentage of bar proceeds are donated to the benefit organization. Also available is a donation box for folks who want to be superstars and give more to the cause.
MONDAY, MARCH 13th, 2017 at Aurora
JR Uretsky, performing “What I Found Out There”
J.R. Uretsky weaves performance, video, puppetry, and sculpture into emotionally charged, affective artworks that shift seamlessly between autobiography and fiction. Uretsky’s work confronts viewers with expressive confessions that test the bounds of comfort, personal space, and acceptable presence. The characters that emerge through her performances are relatable yet also alien and non-specific, forging an ambiguous space where emotion is the remaining constant.
Jason Curzake is an amateur historian and nautical enthusiast who explores the relationship between memory, landscape and the longing for an origin. Images, detritus, history and artifacts from Coastal Rhode Island, where he grew up, often manifest in his performances and written/ visual work, an exploration of how geography and places we have inhabited, especially as children and teenagers and through ancestry influence our identities.
