Event description

Description

BLACK WOMEN WALKING has been invited to perform at the 2019 Tampa Bay Theatre Festival Saturday, August 31, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at Stageworks Theatre in Tampa, FL. To support the Phoenix, AZ based production of BLACK WOMEN WALKING and their travel to Tampa, FL for the festival, please join us for a FREE open rehearsal. The rehearsal is followed by a "talk back" where the audience gets to meet the director, the all-female cast, and participate in the play process!

**Can't attend our event, please consider an online donation; click HERE to donate! Through other outreach efforts we have successfully raised funds necessary to travel our stage production. As a group we have worked tirelessly to bring travel expenses to the lowest common denominator and we are still short of our goal.



BLACK WOMEN WALKING by Karen F. Williams (adapted by Kevvin Taylor)

"Black Women Walking overwhelmed our audiences with a masterful combination of movement and digital storytelling that ended in a thunderous ovation. There's no wonder it won the coveted Festival Favorite Award for Best Play!" - Toni Simmons Henson, Producing Director, Atlanta Black Theatre Festival

Directed by: Kevvin Taylor

Synopsis: Imagine the souls of black folks coming alive on stage through the voices and words of black women in America! Storytelling rituals, gospel music, multimedia, humor, and contemporary dance bring to life the stories of courageous black heroines who changed the course of American history. BLACK WOMEN WALKING (Winner "Best Play" 2018 Atlanta Black Theatre Festival) brings together an ensemble of lived experiences and perspectives that elicit from audiences laughter, crying and shouting as it reveals the spirits of Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Marian Anderson, Wilma Rudolph, Bessie Coleman, Willie Mae Ford Smith, Fannie Lou Hamer and others.
