I AM WOMB
Choreographed by Gabriela Grant

Grant explores how colored female bodies are crafted and presented in the eyes of institutions. She examines their femininity and masculinity and how this contributes to their commodification. It also explores how this impacts women’s relationships between one another. The work fuses her movement from her African and urban movement training, as well as her modern dance training. One question Grant presents and invites the audience to think about is, “How can women reclaim the power in their femininity?”

Champagne Party for Time Travelers
Written and Choreographed by Sydney Lemelin and Hana Huie

This piece is based on the real party that famed physicist Stephen Hawking threw for time travelers, for which he sent invitations after the party ended. Lemelin and Huie combine theater and dance to explore the journey of believing in things that do not exist and pursuing what is important to us, however insignificant we may be in the universe.

Rockfish
by Niree Turner

Rockfish is a piece was inspired by rockfish dinners, aunties who aren’t really your auntie, and the strange circumstances under which the playwright’s grandmother’s belongings were replaced with rocks.

Lost Sons
by Sydney Lemelin

This hip-hop theater piece explores the impact of mass incarceration in the black community. The effects of an imprisoned father ripple throughout the entire family and community, and the play highlights the sharp differences in families with and without a father figure around. It also demonstrates differences in how white men and black men are sentenced.
