Cesar Cadabes has presented his work for the Resilience Archives’ Performing Visible Resilience, “Coming to America” in May 2016 and “Anal Sex” in May 2018. He introduced his work-in-progress “#Resist” at Bindlestiff Studio’s 2018 production of Queer as Fuck. That piece, #Resist, was selected to be performed at the 2018 APAture Performing Arts Showcase, an annual multidisciplinary arts festival celebrating emerging Asian and Pacific Islander artists of the San Francisco.
In the summer of 2019, Cesar was selected as a fellow for the Interdisciplinary Writers Lab (IWL), a 3-month, multi-genre master class for local writers of color, a collaboration between Kearney Street Workshop and the Asian Art Museum.
His current project is to expand his work-in-progress into a two-part performance. As #Resist was a response to the intense changes in the cultural, political and social climate of the first year under the Trump administration, #Resist2020 will be performed before the election of 2020 and soon after that election and will continue speak to the current issues and lived experiences, as did the original work.
In addition to his solo performance work, Cesar is currently the Artistic Director of GAPA Theatre, an intergenerational collective of Queer Asian and Pacific Islander writers and performers.
