ABB (Angry Black Bi&^%#$)

  • Guthrie Theater, Dowling Studio, 9th floor 818 South 2nd Street Minneapolis, MN, 55415 United States (map)

A TV pilot presentation by Dame-Jasmine Hughes

For the woman who is neither INSECURE or an AWKWARD BLACK GIRL, ABB (Angry Black Bi&^%#$) is the sum of ATLANTA + TWO BROKE GIRLS divided by two woke brown girls! ABB reflects the modern, unapologetic, and politically incorrect lives of EJ and Chesi, two temperamental codependent besties seeking to make strides in their respective fields (and lives) while challenging biases, managing microaggressions, and living unabashedly. ABB is a quarter-life crisis/coming-of-age story of an urban renaissance rapper and a nomadic free-sprit hipster, as they rely on friendship to navigate being displaced in a patriarchal society.

With hard hitting scenes and salacious humor, ABB acknowledges the truth in stereotypes, and the option to not give a fuck about them. It is distinctive in nature by utilizing the musicality of hip hop, humor, and resilient Black sisterhood to tell this story - deeming it not only a topical marker for current events and pop culture but also a tribute to ‘woke’ brown girls across the country, a sweet confection of humiliation and triumph.

Admission: $9
