China Pharr (she/her) hails from the LBC and got her start performing in street-dancing turf wars and local talent shows. She attended Long Beach Renaissance High School for the Performing Arts (Class of 2008). Moving to NYC in 2016, after 5 years in Oakland where she was a part of BLM Bay Area, she began working as an erotic and burlesque dancer performing in NYC’s hottest night clubs. Her first theatrical role was Sheep in A Barn Play (UP Theatre Company - Spring 2020, performances canceled). She’s currently devising cute things with The Anthropologists for No Pants in Tucson, and at Stella Adler’s Day Conservatory (Class of 2023). Drawing from blood memory and hood wisdom, China is interested in fusing and bending disciplines and genders to bring unknown experiences into the contemporary mainstream, particularly around Black women and sexuality.
