SHE, a Vagina Monologue/ For Colored Girls Update?
This is why I am co-producing a show, along with multi-talented dancer and choreographer Jinah Parker, called SHE. The best way to describe it is Eve Ensler’s THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES meets Ntozake Shange’s FOR COLORED GIRLS. It is dance, it is music, it is about sexual violence, what happened to Sandra Bland after being stopped by a police officer in Texas, and it is storytelling about healing from trauma and pain. It features women who are actual survivors of sexual violence, in their childhoods, as adults, or both. I have never quite experienced anything like this show, which is why I came aboard as a producer, as a male ally.
It will be staged for the first time at NEW YORK LIVE ARTS on Monday evening, April 11th, at 7pm. All details are below and attached but PLEASE BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE:
