AMERICAN AS F*CK
September 21 - October 7, 2017
@ The New Ohio, 154 Christopher Street #1E
American AF is a nightly multi-act bill of
short films, plays, panels, music, dance, visual art, and discussion
centralizing black, brown, queer,
and radically political / artistic voices.
The festival will produce 30+ artists speaking through, at, and from within this vicious and incredibly alive moment in our history.
It is a call to recalibrate - from straight / white as neutral - to an American identity that centralizes black, brown, and LGBQT people, asserting themselves as a fluid, intelligent, articulate, pioneering, dissenting culture relentlessly reinventing itself as it fights for freedom and justice.
Curated and produced by: Jessica Almasy and Ann Marie Dorr
Lead Curators: Zhailon Levingston, Monet Hurst-Mendoza, Jeremy O Harris, Darian Dauchan, Ann Marie Dorr
