much love to NIC Kay on their show Lil BLK by NIC Kay which is showing tonight at the Hamlin Park Fieldhouse as well as tomorrow afternoon. Working on this piece brought me a lot of joy & focus in a really scatter-minded week. <3
"In an experimental solo performance influenced by New York City gay/queer ballroom culture, live punk shows, butoh and praise dance, lil BLK tells the autobiographical story of a fairy boi, child of god, little black girl, performer and activist. Through the exploration of form, performer NIC Kay wrestles with the societal constraints placed on the black feminine body and the traps of being a black performer searching for freedom on the stage…in a beat."
