Sandglass Theater's Voices of Community Series Begins this Weekend with Lenelle Moise
Sandglass Theater's Voices of Community Series kicks off this weekend with inspired and award-winning playwright and performance artist: Lenelle Moïse, performing her one-woman show Womb-Words, Thirsting at Sandglass Theater in Putney, VT. This is a collaborative presentation by Sandglass Theater, Next Stage Arts Project, and Green Mountain Crossroads.
Mixing a brew full of womanist Vodou jazz, queer theory hip-hop, spoken word, and song, Womb-Words, Thirsting is an interactive performance of patchwork poetic storytelling delivered, slam-style, from the gut. Haitian-American solo performer Moïse, re-conceives memory, dances revolution and reclaims F-words. Watch as she channels protective parents, first girl crushes, tough neighbors and the fiercely divine feminine. Womb-Words, Thirsting is an illuminating, empowering and hilarious evening of theatre about growing up immigrant, working-class, politicized and queer(ed).
Lenelle Moïse is a traveling poet, award-winning playwright and solo performance artist who creates jazz-infused, hip-hop bred, politicized texts about Haitian-American identity, creative resistance and the intersection of race, class, gender, sexuality, memory and spirit. As part of her week long residency in Putney, Lenelle will be leading two incredible workshops at Next Stage Arts Project.
