The Finger
by Doruntina Basha

The Finger draws its impetus from a vacuum, from a family bereft, and the implacable dynamics between two women. In it, a disappearance calls for-and exacts-rituals in the gap between life and death.

Location: Venus Theatre.

Going into the Fall, Venus will produce, “The Finger” by Doruntina Basha. She is a playwright who lives in Kosovo and this will be the first time her play is produced on this side of the ocean.

In A Letter to My Ex, the musical, Composer and vocalist Be Steadwell tells stories of love, loss, and intimacy. Following the 2018 release of her album “Queer Love Songs”, Steadwell brings her album to life through theater and performance. A Letter to My Ex is a collage of music, movement, and film, narrating one character’s journey through the ups and downs of love.

The piece is presented through a series of letters to an ex. Each letter coupled with a song. Each moment, a reflection on the process of grieving the loss of love and learning to move on. A letter to my ex explores self-love, addiction, twerking, sex, life, and death through the lens of a heartbroken queer black woman.
