Experimental Bitch is excited to announce Bitchin’ Collabs’ first public sharing on August 5th, featuring new works by Amara Brady, Aizzah Fatima, and Julie Piñero. Bitchin’ Collabs is a new residency program supporting femme POC artists in the development of dynamic, interdisciplinary works-in-progress over the course of EBP’s 2020 Season.
This program was created to provide an accessible outlet for emerging femme POC artists to experiment with hybrid forms and to offer audiences an inside look into the artistic process. Bitchin’ Collabs is curated by Princess Grace Award/Honoraria-winning writer, director and deviser, Miranda Haymon. Alisha Bhowmik (Dot & a feather, Sundance Collab) serves as Virtual Technical Producer. Each BC resident artist will receive $300 and a curated development period to work with collaborators and the BC creative team.
“The goal of my work is to uplift Black women,” says creator, Amara Brady. “I write so that fat Black women see themselves as divine and lovable and worthy. I write so that Black women get to be the heroes of our own story. I write these things because these stories are what I myself have been deprived of.”
Bitchin’ Collabs’ first public sharing, which will feature 20 minute excerpts of each project, will take place on August 5th, 2020 at 7 PM EST. The event is free to the public, with a $10 suggested donation.
