At a time when there were few stories about women of color, poet-activist-novelist-playwright Shange penned a now-seminal and treasured work of American Theatre. Seven African American women, each identified solely by a color, traverse class, gender, sexuality, and geography in this highly personal ‘choreopoem.’ “Remarkable,” says The New York Times, “a joyous celebration” that weaves word and dance into something genuinely special, something to “be savored and treasured.”
This show is 90 minutes long with no intermission.
Please note that a smoke machine is used during this performance.
Recommended for children grade 8 and up.
