“This one goes out to the coloured sisters Down Under…’
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 twenty-somethings in Sydney. The show is vibrant and hard-hitting, shifting tempo and mood to delve 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). Black Birds look forward to growing the show once more for their 2019 season at The Old Fitzroy Theatre (Sydney).
Their previous self-titled work was named by Sydney Morning Herald as “one of the hottest stage tickets for 2017.”
