Black & Ugly as Ever

Location: Anderson Auditorium

A one-woman show featuring Porsha Olayiwola, Poet Laureate of Boston, Mass.

The performance is free, and Greater Madison is warmly invited to attend.

Tickets are not required, and seating is limited.

“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.

This wonderful opportunity is brought to you by the Black Arts Matter festival, and by Edgewood College.
