Presented as part of the first Black Arts Festival, “Black & Ugly as Ever” is a one-person choreopoem starring Porsha Olayiwola. The piece 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 praises the defiance of rigid normalities. Be prepared to laugh, cry, think critically, and be a little uncomfortable in this dangerous love story.
