Feminine Folklore arrives at Joe’s Movement Emporium for the premiere of their new show, “What’s Your Superpower?” Joe’s Executive Director Brooke Kidd is, “thrilled to host this unique collection of voices at Joe’s.” Feminine Folklore founder Goldie Patrick is a Mount Rainier, MD resident and recently performed at Joe’s Movement Emporium with Taurus Broadhurst Dance. Tickets are $20 per adult.
“Dedicated to community, this piece is more than just a performance,” explains Goldie Patrick, recent founder of FRESHH, Inc. Theatre Company. “This interactive experience allows audience members to participate in dialogue with the actors, attend open rehearsals, and through social media, audience members can also help write the script.”
Audiences have met previous Feminine Folklore performances with positive acclaim, “I have never seen a show so honest, and raw, and hilarious and empowering for women, it was just what I needed.” While the show is female-centered, even men have had powerful experiences: “As a man, it was so great to feel included in the story and be able to laugh at myself at times and think about things I would have never thought about. It’s definitely a show by women, but not only for women.”
About “What’s Your Super Power”: Through poetry, music, and theater, this performance gathers some of the community’s strongest female artists to explore exactly what makes a woman so super. The performance run about an hour and may not be appropriate for children 13 and under. Refreshments will be available for purchase in the lobby.
Feminine Folklore was created to give voice to the experiences of a culturally diverse group of women. Aimed at capturing a variety of perspectives, experiences, and ideas, while breathing life to some of the universal themes of womanhood. Together our goal is to create a space where the narrative of the experiences as women growing and evolving, is captured by our own voices. We are diverse; in several ways. From class, to sexuality, to ethnicity, to political affiliation, to spiritual beliefs, there are several ways to “redefine” the ways we are different from each other.
