Pioneers Go East Collective

La MaMa to present

The World Premiere of Pioneers Go East Collective’s VIRGO STAR in NYC,

An intimate interactive performance, written and devised by the Pioneers Go East Collective -ˇ Gian Marco

Riccardo Lo Forte and Daniel Diaz, in collaboration with Philip Trevino, Anabella Lenzu and

artist/writer/activist Agosto Machado, and directed by Gian Marco Riccardo Lo Forte.


Queering the cinematic tropes of classic western films, VIRGO STAR explores and explodes

the myth of the American Cowboy, examining same-ˇsex intimacy, self-ˇawareness and the fear

of being marginalized in a fictional West. Devised and performed by a collective of LGBTQ and

feminist artists, this thought-ˇprovoking performance fuses personal storytelling, movement and

video projections.


Featured performance artists include Bree Breeden, Daniel Diaz, Anabella Lenzu, Gerard

Minaya and Agosto Machado. Guest songwriter Chris Riffle.

The production team includes Beth Graczyk (Choreography), Hao Bai (Video Design), Jon

Burklund (Cinematography), Philip Trevi.o (Set & Lighting Design), Gavin Price (Sound

Design), Daniel Diaz (Costume Design) and Dmitri Barcomi (Stage Manager).
