About Morticia Godiva (her/shey)

“Normal is an illusion, what is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly” —Morticia Godiva

Morticia Godiva is an actor, writer, model, and dancer based in New York City. Some of her notable work includes Feeling Like An Orchid, a short film that she wrote, produced, and starred in. The film tells a story of Black love and dating within a polyamorous relationship. This year Godiva released a short experimental film titled Boomerang. The film begs the question of where people’s intentions are, and are they as intentional as they think. As an artist Morticia engages in work that may intersect with her identity. She currently serves as the Director of Client Services for the Black Trans Travel Fund, a black trans led collective that redistributes funds to Black trans women in New York and New Jersey. Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning Long Wharf Theatre is set to produce Poly Pockets, an afrofuturism stage play that Godiva wrote.
