Lois Weaver (a.k.a. Tammy WhyNot) one of the most important feminist lesbian performance artists and Alina Troyano (a.k.a. Carmelita Tropicana) a latina, lesbian performer extraordinaire met at the WOW café and have shared the stage since the 80’s. These divas reunite to bring fun, mischief and facilitate public engagement in Chile’s 2016 Exxentric Encuentro.
Cheet Chat Chile
Tammy and Carmelita reunite in a 21st century homage to Cheet Chat with Carmelita, a 1980s satire TV Talk Show created by Uzi Parnes at Club Chandelier in downtown NYC. The divas will act as anarchic roving reporters who interview guests, invite spontaneous performance as well as provide a space to talk about issues of eccentricity that may arise throughout the festival/conference. It is part news show, part talk show, part clearing house, and part cocktail lounge.
