Viva:BLACK an Intimate Evening With Vie
Saturday, July 20, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH VIE is the second installment of the Viva:BLACK Trilogy. It is a look into the journey of Black female performers throughout American history. A one woman show, it's a journey of loves duality through the eyes of many women. It brings to the forefront the journey of self that lies beyond loves duet. It is an evening of singing, dancing and theatrics that you don't want to miss!
Funding for this production was provided in part by the Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation.
When & Where
Kendra Dennard is a dynamic and statuesque dancer also known as Pittsburgh's vocal gem, Vie Boheme. A vocal renaissance woman; she uses soul, funk, rock and jazz elements in her music. She employs smooth and stealthy transitions to flow between singing, dancing, and scatting rhythms. Her eclectic and inclusive lyrics ring of truth and beautifully snap us all back to reality. Her poetry serves as vivid imagery of all too familiar experiences that weave through her music. Professionally trained in dance, Vie can’t help but to dance along the path that her musicians pave, engulfing her audience into an experience that excites the senses.
