Part dance-theater and part pop-culture collage, Raja Feather Kelly is UGLY and this is the latest from the Warhol-obsessed; Black; Queer; Drama Queen of the feath3r theory and his response to the dearth of nuanced black queer subjectivity in the mainstream. Raja Feather Kelly says "I am an Ugly man. I am a queer of substance, color and depth, thoughts and expression- and I might even be said to possess magick. I am Ugly, understand, simply because you refuse to see me... "

Raja Feather Kelly's UGLY was created with support of the Harkness Foundation, The Bushwick Starr, and the Princess Grace Foundation- USA. Raja Feather Kelly is a 2017 and 2018 Princess Grace Awardee.

The Bushwick Starr's 2018-19 Season is supported in part by the Howard Gilman Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York Department of Cultural Affairs.
