Photos and Story by James Hill
SYLVANIA CAMPUS – Have your sense of humor on guard because the Guerilla Girls are invading Portland Community College. The entertaining theater collective will host a show at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19 in the Performing Arts Center on the Sylvania Campus, 12000 S.W. 49th Ave. The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous internationally-acclaimed theater group. They focus on the disenfranchisement experienced by women and artists of color. The performance includes "Feminists Are Funny," which is a 70-minute energetic romp through their stories. Also, the troupe will give an up-to-date account of their latest actions in politics, the performing arts and the media, a sneak peak at scenes from the brand new Guerrilla Girls on Tour show and the history of some of the funniest female activists and their accomplishments. At the conclusion, there will be a discussion with the audience on the current cultural trends for women and artists of color. For more information, contact Deborah Evind, Sylvania Women’s Resource Center coordinator, at 503-977-8101, or visit the Web site: guerrillagirlsontour.com.
