As we prepare for the 2nd weekend of ‘Price Point’ in the SKETCHBOOK 13 performance festival, here’s some audience feedback we received from last weekend:
“That was wonderful. You were like one breath, different registers…Excellent.”
–Khadijah Kysia;Wellness Practitioner
“Ohhh My Goodness, I went to church at 12pm today. Church was the Honey Pot Performance, PRICE POINT. The poesy of real talk and the energy of the pieces were honest and accessible! The poignancy of the pieces and the timing were also refreshing. The topics were current and reflected Black womyn….and the movement was intentional and completed their words. The acknowledgment of the informal economy, working poor, interpersonal violence, bills and order, bills and negotiation, clinics that dont listen, mental health….whew! it was all good and didnt beat me over the head. The only thing is that I wanted it to be an audience full of sistas for the sake of ritual and to offer reassurance and understanding to the performers. The audience was too quiet as they sat and held their breaths on the parts they did get. There was a need for call and response, “girl yes…” “Ashe” “preach” etc etc etc. so, if I can find the time to round up some sista-friends imma try to make it back to see it again in the company of familiarity.”
—Veronica Precious Bohannon;writer, visual artist, mental health services activist
“This is compelling stuff. . .[Price Point] breaks the boundaries of academic postulation on these matters, even as you use the language of the sector, to get at the reality.”
—Bayo Olayinka Ojikutu;award-winning novelist (’47th Street Black’, ‘Free Burning’)
