Body So Fluorescentmadonnanera
What happened last night on the dance floor? Two friends retrace their steps from the night before to figure out how it all ended in an explosive fight.In their effort to figure out last night’s facts, both friends shift from self to alter-ego, and along the way, are met with stunning revelations. Body So Fluorescent is an explosive solo show, asking difficult questions about Blackness, otherness, and oppression. Winner of NOW Magazine Best of Fest in Outstanding Play, Production and Performance at SummerWorks 2018.
“Cordner’s performance is a sheer force of power. I have honestly never seen anything like it…. You really need to see this performance to believe it happened”
-Lorenzo Pagnotta, My Entertainment World, A+ Review
“Intricately written in two acts, the details of the night are slowly revealed in a most engaging way.”
