I.D. Festival — NIC Kay
OBERON Presents, OBERON Shows
Sunday, January 29, 2017 at 8PM

lil BLK is an experimental solo performance from emerging artist NIC Kay. Influenced by New York City gay/queer ballroom culture, live punk shows, butoh and praise dance, lil BLK is a story about a fairy boi, child of god, little black girl, performer, and activist. The story plays out through a series of biographical moments that are equal parts narrative and dream.

Drawing from sources like praise dance, vogue chants, performance art, house DJaying and spoken word, the piece is at times an autobiographical account of the artist’s growing up queer, Black and gender-nonconforming in the Bronx. More

A first-person account from NIC Kay off the beaten track, as told to Anne Ford. More
