People who have saved this event:


lil BLK is performer and designer NIC Kay’ deeply personal exploration of Black and queer identity through the lens of their lived experiences. This live experimental solo performance delves into moments of pain, loss, and the quest for healing.


Set against the backdrop of a twenty-year shift in public attitude toward the LGBTQ community, everchanging queer cultures, and the evolving and reimagined landscape of the dancefloor–NIC Kay’s narrative unfolds with raw honesty and vulnerability, inviting reflection and connection with the audience. 

Part of the 2024 River To River Festival’s 13 projects of free live art, dance, performances and participatory events in public spaces throughout Downtown New York, this presentation of NIC Kay’s first solo work will be a reimagined version of lil BLK, which debuted at Links Hall in Chicago in 2015. Trace lil BLK’s path from the prestigious 2018 American Realness Festival at Abrons Arts Center, New York, to its feature in the OTV’s (opentv) Bronx Cunt Tour, and captivating performances at AfroPunk Atlanta 2016, Creating Change Conference 2016, Buddies in Bad Times, Dixon Place and beyond.
