Forbidden Fruit

Tyshaun Thomas and Shekinah Williams

Circus, Dance, Storytelling


Forbidden Fruit is a contemporary circus show about freeing yourself from the conditioning to be a certain way, socially or other. It's about sexual freedom, expression and undoing the work that has been done by many people in our lives but most importantly right at home and in our communities. It also quietly yells at the American beauty standards and is sometimes just about how sexy you dare to be.
