TAP ME on the SHOULDER
Written & performed by Erika Kate MacDonald
From the award-winning creators of Fluid and Peg-ass-us, masters of queer storytelling Pack of Others present a “fierce and heartfelt” one-woman show about rapping, words, empowerment, and challenging the status quo. Structured as a ten-step lesson plan for how to become a rapper, this rap and movement-infused story explores one nerdy white girl’s coming out/of age journey from New Hampshire hilltops to Brooklyn fifth-floor walk-up vistas. With MacDonald’s “magnetic stage presence” and “wicked comic timing,” the rap lessons become a vehicle for learning how to listen, find your footing, secure your place in the world, and indulge your curiosity... boldly.
