Pomo Afro Homos: Fierce Love (Remix)

San Francisco

 

"Uncompromisingly African American, uncompromisingly queer, and still remarkably universal." —Chicago Reader

RADAR L.A. FESTIVAL

 

In 1991 the groundbreaking group Pomo Afro Homos premiered Fierce Love: Stories from Black Gay Life and secured their place in the history of queer performance. Through a series of savvy vignettes, the company brought a humor as fierce as the love they explored, creating a theatrical touchstone at the intersection of race and sexuality. Now, two decades after its premiere, writer-director-performer Brian Freeman remixes the Pomo’s original production with a talented new crew of performers, and the occasional riff on the current moment. But the Pomos' indelible tales driven by clear and potent voices—from sad young men to signifying sissies to back-room roamers—remain as raucous and fresh as when they first took to the stage, enriched by new resonance and poignancy.
