Brown Skin Girl

Date: 28 Dec 2018

Black Birds bring their hard-hitting show back to Sydney after sold-out shows at Griffin’s BATCH Festival in 2018.

Brown Skin Girl melds visual art, spoken word, music and movement, drawing audiences into the lives of three Black and Brown women as they navigate the complexities of life as 20-somethings in Sydney. Vibrant and hard-hitting, Brown Skin Girl delves into subject matter including racism, dating, identity, self-worth, body positivity, culture and Afro hair.

First performed at the inaugural Festival Fatale (Sydney, 2016), Black Birds evolved the show into an immersive experience for Griffin’s Batch Festival (2018). Ayeesha Ash, Emily Havea and Angela Sullen star.
