Brown Sugar Bake-Off: BODY
Virtual Festival: Nov 5-7, 2021
Inspired by Paula Vogel’s Bake-Offs, the Two Strikes Theatre Brown Sugar Bake-Off is a celebration of Black women creatives and the stories they have to tell. In our second year, the Brown Sugar Bake-Off will focus on a new theme: BODY. Misogynoir, colorism, objectification, and body-shaming are a part of the Black woman’s experience. This year’s focus is on what it means to take ownership after an undeniable history of the policing of Black and Brown bodies.
