Juneteenth Tilapia Rainbows

Juneteenth Tilapia Rainbows
By Phill Branch
October 9 & 10

Have you ever experienced someone randomly breakdancing at you, or touching your hair without permission, or just walking up to you and shouting in a RuPaul-esque tone, “You better werk!”? Storyteller Phill Branch has experienced all of the above…and he’s got stories.

Juneteenth Tilapia Rainbows explores the dizzying realities of being Black, gay, free…and tired of fake “inclusion.” Phill uses wit and reflection to think through what it means to just be yourself.

Phill Branch is a Moth GrandSlam Champion and a 2019 recipient of the Maryland State Arts Council’s “Theater Solo Performance Award.” Currently, he produces and hosts Isolation be Like, a storytelling podcast centered on identity and culture. The podcast was supported by a Rubys Artist Grant, which is a program of the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation. He is a professor at Goucher College in Communication and Media Studies, focusing on race and ethnicity in film and media.

An alumnus of the American Film Institute, Phill directed Searching for Shaniqua; a documentary about the impact names have on our lives. The film won the HBO Best Documentary award at the 2016 Martha’s Vineyard African-American Film Festival.

You can find Phill at and at @phillbranch on IG/Twitter.
