About the Event

Iconoclasm - from Greek: eikṓn, 'figure, icon' + kláō, 'to break'

Welcome to The Roses - a garden, a parlor, a shrine, and a cabaret where the boundaries between past/present/future, ancestors/descendants, the earth and the grave blur and thin. Here - queer ancestors long passed gather, voices freed from generations of a history they did not choose. And, let me tell you, they have songs to sing.

Iconoclasm is a sweeping ritual-cabaret by songwriter and performer Carlisle Evans Peck and ensemble. They are out to queer what it means to be a bard - a keeper of stories in song. With stories drawn from familial lore and oral histories, Carlisle invites queer ancestors known and unknown onto the stage and into the spotlight - embodying the bachelor farmers, the coal miner lovers, the genderqueer witches, and the ancestral drag mothers of their family lineage. Part ritual, part music-theater, and backed by a live rock orchestra, Iconoclasm traverses balladry, glam rock, and drag, breaking cracks in the veneer of history to release the glittering forgotten lives within.

If you can’t see yourself in the stories you’ve been given, write yourself in - with maximal glitter.

Artist Bio: For Minneapolis composer Carlisle Evans Peck, songs are vessels for forgotten tales, landscapes of emotion through which to wander, and spells and offerings. A consummate musical storyteller with a singularly magnetic sense of drama, their solo and collaborative work makes the mythic tangible and the mundane legendary while traversing genres of folk balladry, glam rock, and choral singing. They strive to keep the ancient bardic traditions of storytelling through song alive in the modern age with a sparkling queer flair.

Carlisle Evans Peck is a fiscal year 2024 recipient of a Creative Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
