Dame daDA & the Covidada Meta Show Nichole Hamilton

After living in a Beckett play for ...how long have I been here? What a question... Dame daDa invites you to share 1800 seconds of silliness as we make (non)sense of where we have been and ponder where are we going, and why ARE we in this hand-basket?! Dame daDA appeared in the 2017 Fringe Festival at the Ritz Theatre Studio where one Minnesotan stopped her on 13th Avenue and exclaimed "I don't know what I just saw, but I loved it." Dame daDA brings a little something different in the guise of storytelling, stand-up, satire, games, performance art (ew, gross), and pure ridiculousness, this isn’t a show…it’s meta.
