    Ryan OByrne and Camila Camaleon present “Let The Devil Devour Me” at Plummer Park

    Ryan OByrne and Camila Camaleon present “Let the Devil Devour Me”, a re-performance of scenes from film and television in which Queer and/or Trans characters were played by Cis and or Straight actors. Through the generous support of an arts grant from The City of West Hollywood and Pieter Performance Space, the work has transformed and developed into an exploration and exclamation of the desires of the work’s Queer and Trans collaborators. Rather than focus on transmuting their experience through the occupation of historic scenes, the artists have instead chosen to center their own artistic process, interpreting their subjectivity through a reclamation of their own placement within abstraction and experimental performance techniques.

    Let The Devil Devour Me was made possible with support from the City of West Hollywood’s Arts Project Grant. The event is taking place on Sunday, August 20, 2023, 7:30 PM 8:20 PM Plummer Park, The Great Hall. 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard$10 suggested donation. No one will be turned away.

    About the artists:

    Ryan OByrne is a queer transdiciplinary artist from Buffalo, NY. Ryan grew up in a working class family. Ryan’s work is deeply influenced and inspired by critical reflections of labor, exploitation and psychoanalysis. Ryan is a graduate of The Juilliard School and was the recipient of The Michel and Suria Saint Denis Prize for Leadership in Drama. Ryan has shown work in New York City at Danspace, Judson Church, Dixon Place, White Columns, Governor’sIsland Art Fair, with AUNTS, Brooklyn Arts Exchange and in California at DAC Gallery, Highways Performance Space, Redcat, PAM Residencies, The Box gallery through a six week residency with Pieter Performance Space and in Oakland at The Starline Ballroom, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and Drugstore Kansas City. Ryan has also been an assistant director to many award winning directors and has taught acting across the country.

    Camila Camaleón is a paradigm shifter and TransFemme Queer archivist based in the San Gabriel Valley region of Los Ángeles. Her spatial exploration centers bridge-building via joy, playfulness, and power as 2SLGBTQIA+ to the center. In the main narrative of LA County the San Gabriel Valley region is often forgotten, and it is her artistic desire to spark change in the landscapes and soundscapes that are beyond this world. Her gallery debut in 2021 was powered by Reach La’s exhibit, Movement Through Cataclysms, a photo exhibition highlighting trans thought and contestación, Black queer intimacy, and Indigenous futurity. Last April she completed a 6 week residency collaboration at Pieter Performance Space, hosted by The Box LA, which explored film and television trans characters that were played by cis and/or het actors. Last June she joined Celebration Theatre’s first run of Tales of the Transcestors. Tales of the Transcestors, part of the 2022 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Outside of the performance space, she is a multi-fascinated writer, community advocate, and Board President for the SGV LGBTQ+ Center.
