7 p.m. D'LO Performance, followed by Q&A and reception
Sponsored by Asian American Resource Center, Pomona College Museum of Art, and the Queer Resource Center
Using excerpts from D’s different solo shows, D’FaQTo Life (pronounced De Facto) is roller-coaster ride of emotions with stories executed through stand-up, spoken word/poetry, and theater. D’Lo explores topics relating to South Asia and transgender social justice from the perspective of being a child of immigrant parents, raised in hip hop culture while trying to negotiate how identifying as “queer” intersected with a passion to create political art.
D'Lo's career work has included being part of several performance groups (Artwallah, Great Leap, Arpana Dance Company, Mujeres de Maiz); working closely with diverse youth as a teaching artist; establishing D'Lo as both a solo and collaborative performer and being published in various magazines and anthologies.
D'Lo holds a BA from UCLA in Ethnomusicology and is a graduate of New York's School of Audio Engineering (SAE).
