Black & Ugly As Ever

green on. (1).png

Black & Ugly as Ever is a one-person choreopoem that explores what it means to move through reality as a queer, fat, dark-skinned woman.  The production utilizes original song, poetry, and movement to discover love of self in a body that occupies multiple marginalized identities. This hour-long production is split between two halves: one that scrutinizes society's norms and the other that praise the defiance of rigid normalities. Be prepared to laugh, cry, think critically and be a little uncomfortable in this dangerous love story.

The choreopoem runs for about 50 minutes and is malleable to location. Please contact for bookings.
