Asis D’Orange – The Carrot
Asis D’Orange has become a household name in Tel Aviv’s underground drag scene for their subversive performances playing with the borders of both genre and gender.
Born Aviv Shalem and raised in a religious household, Asis discovered, in drag, a place to delve into fashion and art from a distinctly political, anarchist and genderqueer perspective. Their star has been on the rise since 2017 when they took home the crown in the Tel Aviv International LGBT Film Festival’s first drag competition.
Asis’s passions cover fashion, feminism and veganism, which converge in dark and glamorous ways in The Carrot. Nevo Zisin will introduce the performance and conduct a brief audience Q&A after the show.
