Laveau Contraire, Drag Queen Extraordinaire, presents COLORS, a new work created in-residency at the CAC with collaborators Franky Canga, sora, and Synamin Vixen. Through the art forms of storytelling and performance, each performer will use a specific color to paint a picture from their own colorful lives. Together, the cast of COLORS will splatter the walls of your mind with experiences and perspectives on what it means to live in a world full of color.
