Raquel Cion “Me & Mr. Jones: My Intimate Relationship With David Bowie”
January 17 | 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm
“Me & Mr. Jones: My Intimate Relationship with David Bowie” returns to Pangea for three weekends this fall following its sold-out run in the spring. The evening explores Brooklyn-based performer Raquel Cion’s lifelong soul love for David Jones a.k.a. David Bowie’s artistry and humanity. Through personal stories and deep cuts from Bowie’s catalog, psycho-delicate girl Cion rockets the audience through her inner space as she investigates growing up as an outsider, the celestial realms of love, mid-life crisis, loss, and cancer.
