All over the world from, San Diego
In this storytelling performance, award-winning performer Kimberly Dark shares stories from her new book, Fat, Pretty and Soon to be Old, in order to remind us: “You don’t owe anyone pretty,” and “We are creating the world, even as it creates us.” Dark invites her audience to live in the experience of the body, not the appearance of the body. Drawing from her own experience as a fat, queer, white-privileged, recently disabled, inevitably aging, gender-conforming “girl with a pretty face,” Kimberly Dark blends storytelling and social analysis to reveal the presence of everyday appearance privilege (and stigma). Join her to explore how the architecture of this social world constrains us and how we might help one another break free.
