Little Black Topsy and The Magical White Fairy Soap

2010 – 2012
Multi-media Performance
1 hour

A satirical work which chronicles the adventure of Little Black Topsy as she goes in search of an enchanted soap which will change her skin from black to white.

Fully immersed in the grotesquerie of the minstrel form, Disney iconography, and the Exotica musical genre, LITTLE BLACK TOPSY uses cultural pastiche to explore the complex relationship between black girls and whiteness.
