Queens Of Sheba (Nouveau Riché)

By | Published on Tuesday 21 August 2018

‘Where are you from? No, where are you from from?’ is a question these women are tired of hearing, and is just one of the many ways in which they experience misogynoir (prejudice directed towards black women) on a regular basis. In this entirely stripped down show, it’s their lyrical words, acapella soul singing and flawless choric movements that really take us on their journey. Through their keenly felt satire, they depict the deeply ingrained forms of prejudice within our society with a bold, fiery energy that electrifies the stage. Funny, heart-wrenching and ultimately empowering, this is the kind of intersectional feminism that needs to be seen and heard everywhere.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 26 Aug.
