This is one of monologues by the character, Levee, from August Wilson’s play, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Beautiful, powerful writing by August Wilson — and now it’s in movie form with the late Chadwick Boseman playing this character, Levee!
I learned and performed this monologue back in a college acting class, and it’s always stuck with me. This is a performance for fun in honour of the Netflix film release.
why do they ride pandas if they have wings? maybe flight drains their magical powers? and wouldn’t these be GARGANTUAN-sized pixies? or are these teeny tiny pandas?
maybe this united group of ostracized giant pixies were considered abominations in their culture and their wings are torn off at birth?
or maybe a slight genetic variation gives them massive size but tiny useless wings?
anyhoo, “Pixies on Pandas” is the idea. this is what I’ve got to show for it 😁🐼🧚🏽♀️
