KimberlyÂs newest performance art release is a comic-erotic-drama for adult audiences only. Dykeotomy is a funny, touching and erotic game of gender dodgeball! Where do you draw your lines and distinctions about sex and gender? Come find out. DykeotomyÂs message about inclusion just might surprise you...
"Dark is an exquisite tour guide for this heartfelt journey into the construction of the self. Through performance poetry, this soul searching and sometimes comical journey leads the audience through the blurred distinctions of gender identity which are precariously balanced between clearly drawn cultural stereotypes."
Kimberly's writing and performances have delighted and incited audiences at theaters and universities across North America and Europe for more than a decade. She continues to teach sociology at Cal State San Marcos as much as her schedule allows. Her work blends humor, poetry, story-telling, and audience interaction to remind all of us that we are creating the world - even as it creates us! Kimberly Dark continues to work tirelessly on her abilities as a parent, poet, professor and raconteur who can unfold the world through performance, smooth out the crinkles from folding, read the legend and say "You Are Here." Someday she will even be able to refold the world and fit it back into the glove-box. Kimberly travels far and wide performing stories that make people laugh, think and feel. She wins theatre awards, smiles when seeing her stories in print, enjoys standing ovations and endures days when settling down to a more regular life seems more sensible. Such is the glamourous life of a pop-sociologist who wants to expand conversations about gender, race and class beyond the university so that we all take up the charge of creating a more just world. Kimberly has performed in dozens of fancy theatres and esteemed classrooms, but she also loves a stage where there's nothing swanky - just the body, the voice, the word and the audience. Just be sure to bring up the house-lights because this isn't a traditional theatre show - she really is talking to YOU.
