Theater production

Constellations is a multimedia theater piece that aims to reflect and track the psychological and emotional development of a young black female. The one-woman play utilizes different modes of storytelling–prose, narrative anecdote, spoken word, and poetry–to explore the depth of how one can experience marginalization. An unnamed Lead takes the audience on a tour through the Garden of Dreams, a holding space for unrealized aspirations and the unresolved past. The piece travels through time and space to capture wrestling with identity politics throughout crucial moments of development and self discovery. In spite being hopeful for a better future, how does one navigate oppression on a moment to moment basis? What if anything actually grows in the Garden of Dreams?
