Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Looking for Tiger Lily


Starring Anthony Hudson – the human vessel for Portland’s premiere drag clown Carla
Rossi – Looking for Tiger Lily utilizes song, dance, drag, and video to put a
queer spin on the ancestral tradition of storytelling. Asking what it means for a queer
mixed Native person to experience their heritage through white normative culture as they
recount growing up watching the 1960 production of “Peter Pan” featuring Sondra Lee’s
blonde, blue-eyed “Indian Princess” Tiger Lily, Anthony (and Carla) draw from a
songbook stretching across Disney’s “Pocahontas” to Cher’s “Half-Breed.” Not just
autobiography, Looking for Tiger Lily is a coming-of-age story that's more
than cowboys versus Indians.

Looking for Tiger Lily's 2016 Portland premiere was featured on OPB and
individually profiled by the Portland Mercury, Portland Monthly, Willamette Week, the
Portland Tribune, and Oregon ArtsWatch. Looking for Tiger Lily made its
New England premiere in April 2018 at the Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth
College, and international touring engagements are on the horizon for 2019.

Looking for Tiger Lily was originally funded in part by the Regional Arts &
Culture Council and developed in partnership with the 2016 Risk/Reward Festival of
New Performance.
