‘Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.’ – Groucho Marx
Junauda Petrus is a writer, aerialist, performance artist, runaway witch and soul sweetener. She has written for the page, stage and screen and loves to produce wild and powerful pieces with her experimental arts collective, Free Black Dirt, with co-creator, Erin Sharkey. She is grateful to be an artist in this lifetime and loves to create art that seeks to explore, expand and excite around the experience of Blackness and love and light. In March she directed her play There Are Other Worlds, a piece that uses aerial, movement and soundscape to tell the story of incarceration, blackness, motherhood and love.
