Event Description

Ladies Ring Shout 2.0 is a Black feminist quality of life performance project, first created and performed in 2011. This restaging/reimagining features HPP's artistic core alongside an intergenerational community cast of Black women/femmes who have worked in collaboration with HPP, to devise a new iteration of the work. Ladies Ring Shout 2.0 focuses on themes critical to Black women and femmes' lives such as representation, love and relationships, scars/trauma, work/life balance, quality of life, nurturing and parenting, spirituality, healing and defining our communities of care. Creative writing and embodied exercises are supplemented with experiments in other artistic mediums including collective play with still image, video, audio and reading excerpts from the work of relevant BIPOC women writers and poets. This work is in partnership with First Church of the Brethren.
