BLACK GIRL MAGIC SHOW! by nicHi douglas

October 21, 2017 @ 12:00 am – 1:15 am

Black Girl Magic Show! is nicHi douglas’ absurdist dance theatre lecture on Black female identity. Utilizing African Diasporan histories, Black feminist theory, and a lot of stuff nicHi douglas made up, BGMS attempts to unpack, re-pack, and de-pack the Black female experience in America as witnessed by one Black woman – The Professor. As the audience follows The Professor, they discover what might happen if the one Black girl without “Black Girl Magic” takes matters into her own hands. Before the show ends, the audience experiences a TED-type talk, modern dance, a magic routine, and a concert, often simultaneously. And they probably see at least 20 wigs.
