Women's Truth is a raw and honest exploration into the minds and hearts of an array of women's theory and experiences.
Curated by Artist in Residence - Latasha Alcindor, Women's Truth allows the audience to feel out the challenges and triumphs of womanhood through women living in different walks of life, finding common grounds for communication to begin, especially generationally and racially.
The evening will feature special performances and sounds from Snap, Orisha Love, Hannah Summer and Latasha Alcindor, concluding the night with a special cross generational panel of women in all forms of artistry spanning from political speech writers, activists to performance artists.
The goal is to start moving forward to understand each other and work together towards pushing the boundaries of the Femme Language.
Latasha Alcindor, also informally addressed as "LA," is an independent artist based out of New York City. Her form-free art travels through a wide range of inspiration found in Experimental, Dance, Jazz, Electronic and Hip Hop music. LA’s energetic calls and performance-based sound have opened doors for her to perform at culturally prestigious events like SXSW, A3C, and Manifesto. In the beginning of 2016, she performed as the headlining act for Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturdays and had her music featured on Refinery 29’s show The Skinny.
Latasha finds resonance in speaking on political, social and cultural experiences in her music, promoting a much needed agenda for those looking to find inner peace, specifically young women of color. With all of her depth, the beauty in LA’s creative style exists due to the juxtaposition of both her thought-provoking, influential messages and her blithe, unbound sound that carries in strong vibration. Her journey is continuous, and with a nonrestrictive formula it actively speaks to those that come across her experiences.
