Featuring Anthony Hudson / Carla Rossi


Resilience in this Racing Reality, or R-cubed, is a series of conversations with Indigenous musicians, performers, and artists who are scheduled to perform at Stanford Live during the 2021–22 season. Hosted by Stanford Live curatorial fellow Will Paisley (Navajo and Blackfeet) and brought to you by Stanford Live, R-cubed gives space to artists to discuss their creative practices and the impact of their work on furthering Indigenous performance and promoting contemporary representations of Indigenous people in the 21st century.

This podcast was recorded in 2020. To keep everyone safe, interviews were conducted remotely.

Will speaks with Anthony Hudson aka Carla Rossi (Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde) who is Portland’s premiere drag clown! Comically known as the Ghost of White Privilege and a Wayward Karen, Carla is Anthony’s drag persona for over 10 years. Carla shares her origin story as an artist with meaningful context for how they represent their life experience through performance. Reflecting on previous shows, the history of drag, politics of refusal, and self-care this episode has an array of insight complemented with lots of laughs.

Don't miss Carla perform live at Stanford Live on November 5 for Queer Horror Gravest Hits and again on November 6 for Carla Rossi Does Drag.
