BLACK GIRLS ARE DELICIOUS
Through a series of short plays, stand-up comedy, and post-modern dance Ashley will share a peek into a truly extraordinary and unique upbringing. Dear God, not another identity piece! What is A Real American Woman? One part baby-dyke, two parts faggot. 7 parts colored girl. 2 parts Wanna-Be. Sounds like a white girl, looks like a black boy. Whatever it is, it’s funny.

Living Gallery, a monthly program curated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa and produced in the Gibney Gallery, presents live performance of storytelling, monologues, spoken word, stand-up, or creative talks.
Each performance—free and open to the public—runs 30-45 minutes, usually scheduled within the hour before a dance concert presented in Gibney’s Theater. We welcome you to attend both events and enjoy a wide range of expressive artists.
Stay after the performance on October 4th to catch Ita Segev: Knot In My Name at 8:00 pm.
The accessible entrance for this location is located at 53A Chambers Street, Gibney’s main entrance. An elevator connects the ground floor entrance with the second floor studios.
Requests for reasonable accommodation after 5:00 pm or on the weekend should be made three days in advance by contacting Elyse Desmond at 646.837.6809 (Voice only), or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
