Francesca D'Uva
This Is My Favorite Song

November 3–5, 2022

Francesca D’Uva (Performance AIRspace 2022–23 Resident) presents This Is My Favorite Song, a one-person show exploring grief and the transformation that accompanies it. Through stand-up comedy and music, D’Uva reflects on the memories that were stirred by the jarring experience of losing her father to COVID-19. This Is My Favorite Song serves as a meditation on belonging and alienation.
