STUDIO Lecture: Mrs. Kasha Davis
September 13, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry
Mrs. Kasha Davis is the stage name of Edward Popil, an American drag performer, actor and television personality based in Rochester, New York. Mrs. Kasha Davis is known for competing on the seventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and can be seen in her touring one-woman-show “There’s Always Time for a Cocktail.” After appearing on the reality television show, MKD has toured internationally, released several musical singles and performs regularly in theaters, clubs and on television and in film. Mrs. Kasha Davis is a “lady,” an international celebrity housewife, and that maternal-like character that’s just a hoot and a holler at family functions. The drag performer grew up in Scranton, PA, graduated from Marywood University with a BA in Theatre, and was a principal dancer in the Ballet Theatre of Scranton.
The event will include a short lecture by drag performer Mr. Kasha Davis in dialogue with School of Art Professor Angela Washko in conjunction with her project “Workhorse Queen.” The event will additionally feature an Ask-Me-Anything audience participatory conversation.
