To be alive as a black woman in theatre.
We can no longer waste our energies trying to be heard.
We exist, we have been existing
and we can longer
afford to be someone’s developmental project.
We can no longer afford to be boxed.
No longer allow the gate keepers to use us as bodies of convenience.
We have been talking transformation, inequalities.
It is tiring.
Until we DO US
we will always be that convenient
black woman for the day.
