Presented by MisSa Blue

Iconic variety star MisSa Blue talks about her experiences growing up as the only black girl on the block in Germany. Born to be the unpopular black sheep, slowly morphing into a resentful underdog, only to rise like a phoenix while changing the world around her. MisSa unpacks stereotypes like Christmas presents under the tree and taps into the collective long-lasting trauma brought upon black people during colonialism lasting on till today.

This is a show about displacement, chosen families and the QTIBPOC narrative.

Supported by Arts Council England.


This show contains violence and references to racism.


The company don’t believe there are any health warnings in this performance.

About the company

MisSa is a variety star, internationally recognised sword swallower, singer, poet and exhibited artist. Voted most influential burlesque performer in Europe 2018, MisSa currently focuses on spoken word and singing framed as experimental theatre. MisSa is frequently interviewed by platforms like the BBC and spoke on TEDx about her own success in overcoming fear. She survived a life-threatening sword swallowing accident in 2016 and has since developed an active voice globally supporting black queer performance art. During lockdown, MisSa produced an arts-activist film supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, which has been included in several international festivals. MisSa, one of four black sword-swallowers worldwide, was the first to perform at the legendary Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas!
