PORSHA DEBUTS HER ONE-PERSON SHOW THIS FALL!!!

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.

Please note there are three showings and locations for the show. See below for details.
