Choreographer, playwright, and dancer Jinah Parker’s momentous and timely work SHE will run OFF-BROADWAY March 31 – May 19, 2018, at the Gym at Judson in Manhattan. This moving work of dance-theater—“a Choreoplay”—opens up all-too-necessary conversations about sexual trauma, systemic racism, women’s healing and ownership of their bodies, and the undoing of rape culture. The show, in development for two years, arrives Off-Broadway just as these crucial conversations about sexual violence have erupted in the mainstream, as allegations against powerful men have given fire to women and driven the #MeToo movement and subsequent Time’s Up Defense Fund, exposing the extent of the systems that heretofore have silenced and shamed survivors, and providing pathways to justice and accountability. Having played to sold-out audiences at HERE Arts Center in Spring 2017, SHE continues its journey—with a newly revamped script, new cast members, and new direction from Tamilla Woodard—in this moment of reckoning, in telling the stories of survivors and giving voice and body to pain as a step toward liberation, healing, and empowerment.



SHE joins the themes of The Vagina Monologues and For Colored Girls, interlinking stories about sexual violence and racialized abuses. Parker met and interviewed a number of women generous enough to share their own stories of surviving sexual abuse; in an earlier iteration of the piece, these women delivered their stories and danced alongside trained performers. Through this process, Parker also began weaving her grandmother’s story into the work—and her own. She explains, “I realized—throughout the research, throughout this process of working with the survivors, continuously talking to them, going through their words, creating dance out of them—that I had my own story of abuse. I thought, ‘If I have been putting this in the back of my mind and didn’t know for years, how many other women are living in the dark, or suppressing something that happened to them?’ And what better a way to regain a sense of self, when something has physically been taken away, or when your body has been abused, then to use your body to reclaim it?” SHE uses a foundation of modern dance with elements of jazz, street jazz and ballet to bring these stories into dancers’ bodies, while actors simultaneously deliver them through monologue and expressionistic interactions.

SHE intersectionally addresses sexism and racism in a poignant consideration of the abuses suffered by Sandra Bland, described by Parker as a "metaphorical rape"-a matter of powerful systems stripping someone of their being. Unlike the women the audience hears from who can reclaim their narratives of abuse, the violation of Sandra Bland ended in death; this is a woman who, among the many tragic, mysterious, and infuriating elements of her story, is no longer around to tell it. Says Parker, who takes on the role of Bland, "I wanted to give her a voice."

Becky Warren's New LP 'Undesirable' is Out Today
by TV News Desk - Oct 19, 2018

Today, Becky Warren releases her highly-acclaimed sophomore album, Undesirable. The record follows Warren's lauded solo debut, War Surplus, that was partly inspired by her own life and told the gritty love story of an Iraq War veteran and his girlfriend. Warren did not intend to write a second concept album until She found herself inspired by another group of people who seem “othered” by society: the individuals selling Nashville's street paper, The Contributor, which is produced by a local non-profit aimed at providing an earned income opportunity for people experiencing homelessness and poverty. Intrigued by the concept, Warren started to approach the vendors on the street, introduce herself, and ask to talk with them while they sold the paper. The resulting album is ultimately about humanity. In distilling the stories of this group of entrepreneurs trying to work their way out of poverty, Warren relays the essence of the human experience and shines a spotlight on the relatable, common ties that bind us together regardless of our demographic. In their 'First Listen' review of the album, NPR Music states, “Most of the tracks here don't read as songs about homelessness, at least not on cursory listen. They chart heartbreak, new love, tough odds and quiet triumph in relatable ways, with a telling detail here or there that hints at each protagonist's broader life situation,” going on to add, “While the topics on Undesirable are often tough, much of the music itself is hopeful, even joyful.'
