Wow…this was a total surprise. It’s been a whirlwind from last weekend, I got a note asking if I could be part of this show at the Sundance Film Festival and of course I said yes. And then I only had a couple days to prepare something for them. But I really enjoyed the entire process, and sometimes nothing motivates like abject terror.
The topic is sisterhood, roughly, and I really like what I came up with. It’s very personal, but I hope that everyone who listens can find a little of themselves in the work, as well.
In any case, I’m completely honored and so grateful to be part of this show. Hit the link and see more.
SPEAKEASY: CONJURING THE COLLECTIVE: WOMXN AT SUNDANCE
Join us for an evening of dynamic performance and energizing conversation. Continuing our tradition of gathering and celebrating the womxn in our Festival community, this year’s event will reclaim the idea of a coven as a source of magic, healing, and power.
We’ve devised a virtual speakeasy featuring performances from an array of talented womxn from the Festival and beyond, honoring a multiplicity of perspectives through our myths and stories, dance, art, music, and culture. Theater directors nicHi douglas and Annie Tippe collaborate on creating unique ways to bring womxn together and creatively respond to an intentional prompt for 2021. So light a candle, prepare a nightcap, and settle into Conjuring the Collective!
Guests include: A very special appearance by recording artist Brittany Howard, poet Apiorkor, poet Ryka Aoki, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Artistic Director Emerita Judith Jamison (Ailey), director Siân Heder, and actor Marlee Matlin (CODA), actor Rita Moreno (Rita Moreno: Just A Girl Who Decided to Go For It), actor SOKO (Mayday, The Blazing World). Collectives including Brown Girls Doc Mafia, Film Fatales, FWD-Doc, and XRCoven will also participate. ”
