The Ladies Ring Shout
Dec 18-20 2011
Wry, savvy, woeful, riotous, saucy, clever, enchanting all at once, Ladies Ring Shout speaks directly to the deadly gaze of the oppressors and with precise and uncompromising execution dismantles that fetishizing and dares the audience to literally ‘ride or die.’ – Audience Member, Stacey G.
A production of Honey Pot Performance
Co-devised by Felicia Holman, Abra Johnson & Meida McNeal
Directed by Sonita Surratt
Costumes by Lindsay Obermeyer
Set & Environmental Design by Jeanne Medina
In The Ladies Ring Shout – a performance using a combination of spoken word, movement and an original soundtrack – Felicia Holman, Abra Johnson and Meida McNeal explore portrayals of women of color in popular culture and contemporary society offering their own poignant and personal stories of resistance in this three-woman show.
“There’s potency within this range,” says TimeOut Magazine. “It’s as if the trio’s work is fundamentally a tug-of-war between emotional and intellectual investigation.”
$15 (online price includes $1.52 service fee)
