ABOUT THE SHOW

 

Developed by the Theatre on the Intersection company, No Disrespect in the Ladybug Camper is a concept piece that explores the complex idea of living as an individual in intersectionality; a human that doesn’t fit into one culture because they intersect so many…

 

Maybe it’s best to start with the definition of intersectionality as defined by Kimberlé Crenshaw (the lawyer and civil rights activist who coined the term): the complex, cumulative way in which the effects of multiple forms of discrimination (such as racism, sexism, and classism) combine, overlap, or intersect especially in the experiences of marginalized individuals or groups.

 

There’s a lot of layers going on there, but once you break it down, it’s a little easier to understand.  For example, Kamarie (she/her+) is a fat, pansexual, veteran. Clara (she/her) is a bisexual, midsize, woman with anxiety and depression, and Jef (he/they) is living with a disability.

WHAT TO EXPECT AS AN AUDIENCE MEMBER

- An outdoor unmasked play reading of a working script​

- An opportunity to listen to a live play reading socially-distant and outside

- We strongly recommend audiences bring blankets and chairs as we will be outside

- If audiences cannot make it to the live performances we encourage folks to watch a recorded performance via YouTube (available to stream August 7th)
