Performances by

OrchiDea- OrchiDea grew up mostly in Guatemala and Honduras where she experimented with cheerleading, gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics but was constantly told her body was too bendy for such disciplines. She later moved to Italy where she discovered the world of aerial arts and attended her first-ever pole class. When she moved to Portland she discovered her true calling in the art of Contortion. She now teaches contortion, flexibility, and pole at Ecdysiast in downtown Portland and performs at Dantes Sinferno among many other venues around the Portland area.

Maarquii on Instagram @maarquii - MAARQUII is a high femme, multi-disciplinary artist who raps, sings, dances, and is the embodiment of the proverbial “triple threat.” Traveling in their youth from El Dorado, Arkansas to Tillamook, Oregon, they eventually found their place in Portland's underground queer scene. They were performing as a backup dancer for Chanti Darling and participating in local dance companies. In 2016, they met Portland production duo JVNITOR, a meeting that would spark their creative relationship and lead to their debut EP “Heavy Petty,” 2017’s follow up EP “Lullaby in Gemini,” and now their debut album “C.A.B.O.” Over crushing dance, hip hop, industrial leaning beats, ethereal soundscapes, and soulful R&B influenced melodies, MAARQUII is able to seamlessly transcend the genre with charismatic confidence and unflinching openness.

Tickets: $10 or sliding scale. Children under 5 get in free and strollers are welcome.

PLEASE NOTE - the market is still free to all ages on Saturday


My People's Market is designed and presented by Travel Portland and Prosper Portland. Music and entertainment curated by YGB.
