FOLUKE CULTURAL ARTS Presents

Continuing a four-decade tradition of high art and transcendent theatre, Director Dale Ricardo Shields, while bringing a man’s eye to a womynist genre, reaches across both race and gender to gently explore pain and to pleasantly experience liberation. His direction exposes the audience to itself and levels the ground of the long walk from birth to death. This story of Black women, in this directors hands, salutes the African presence Toni Morrison unearthed as it proclaims, for one and all, the power of honest reflection. Here, Shields, like Shange, takes down the mirror, holds it to the face, and asks, “What do you see?”

Come and witness this explosive moment of performance as Foluke Cultural Arts Center celebrates the joy of survival and the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
