Brown People Can’t Be Ballerinas
August 22 – 6:00 pm – August 27 – 11:30 pm
The premiere of “Brown People Can’t Be Ballerinas” is this August at the Mississauga Multilingual Fringe Festival.
What if you knew you couldn’t be something, but you tried anyways? Like, really tried? This coming of age story is based on the real lived experience of a brown girl who scrambled her way into the professional ballet world.
In this solo performance, Oshi is both victim and perpetrator in her struggle to prove that Brown people can be ballerinas. Her bewildering encounters with racism and the expectations of her Brown body are as wild and unapologetic as New York City itself.
Tickets are now on sale: $12 (+$2 processing fee)
Performances: Tues August 22, 8:45pm | Thurs August 24, 7pm | Friday August 25, 10:30pm | Sunday August 27, 6pm
