Raja Feather Kelly’s UGLY (Black Queer Zoo)
Written, Directed, and Performed by Raja Feather Kelly
West Coast Premiere
March 5 – 16, 2020
Internationally recognized choreographer Raja Feather Kelly will bring his show UGLY (Black Queer Zoo) as the second installment of the GUSH Series. Part dance theater and part pop culture collage, Kelly’s dynamic solo is about the lack of black queer subjectivity in the mainstream. Anointed in mustard yellow from head to toe and contained inside a clear box, UGLY is unsettling intimate and shockingly beautiful. Don’t look away.
***Raja Feather Kelly’s UGLY (Black Queer Zoo) had its world premiere at the Bushwick Starr in 2018.
