Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine: A Missionary Position - Jul 19th & 20th!

Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine: A Missionary Position 
Thursday, July 19 & July 20, 2012 (two nights only)

A multimedia solo work for the stage written and performed by Ugandan American artist Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, A Missionary Position is a searing response to the rampant homophobia now gripping Uganda. The noted Los Angeles theater artist incorporates raw video footage and still photography—gathered over recent months on the front lines of the African nation’s LGBT movement—and layers this documentary material with his portrayal of riveting figures drawn from in-person interviews. A Missionary Position reveals Uganda's LGBT community as seen through the eyes of a Ugandan government official, a transgender sex worker, a gay priest, and a lesbian activist, and creates a complex investigation of the burgeoning resistance to state-supported oppression.

A Missionary Position is the follow-up to Mwine’s internationally heralded one-man show Biro, the "New York Times critics pick" about the eponymous HIV-positive Ugandan who illegally entered the United States to seek treatment. Additionally, he has contributed footage to “Call Me Kuchu”, a documenatry film on the life and death of David Kato, Uganda's first openly gay man, which won the Teddy Award for Best Documentary Film at 2012 Berlin Int’l Film Festival.

A Missionary Position premiered in June 2012 at the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater in Los Angeles.
