The [First] Body Political
I’m producing a show with Andi Stardust in a few weeks. I’m so excited/nervous about it. We’ve been talking about doing this for a while now, and the time has come. I’m honored to have this lineup; we had about 40 act submissions and this is truly the crème de la crème. Some brought existing acts, some have been challenged to add a new political piece to their repertoire. We’ve been discussing, workshopping, and talking about this show for a while now, I can’t wait for it to happen!
In the words of my dear friend Magnoliah Black:
“We will not submit to the mainstream beauty myths, marginalizations, bullying.
We actively break down these societal imposed barriers as we remove our clothing and reveal the landscape of our bodies which have become political battle grounds.
The Body Political: Confronting social myths about our bodies through personal stories of resistance and reclamation.
