Nigga-Roo is a multidisciplinary Performance based inquiry into Black identity. This Solo work bravely explores and dissects Blackness as an original and necessary social construct. Because Blackness is rooted in Slavery and saturated in Caricature this work fearlessly and intentionally uses Black Face, Spoken Word, Movement and Monologue to disarm and disrupt the world view of what Blackness is. Nigga-Roo is a critique of The Collective Consciousness of Black Folk. It is through this consciousness that the word Nigga has been introduced into “pop” culture serving as a term of empowerment for Black people and a tool of both discrimination and appropriation for Whites. Nigga-Roo is a humorous, “dark” “In Your Face” commentary on racism and its impact on the Black individual in a Nigga-centric culture.
