The Ladies Ring Shout
Co-devised by Felicia Holman, Abra Johnson & Meida McNeal
Costume Design by Lindsay Obermeyer
Set & Environmental Design by Jeanne Medina & Chris Nightengale
Using a combination of spoken word, movement, and an original soundtrack, The Ladies Ring Shout journeys through contemporary women of color’s experiences. The multimedia work meditates on four frames integrated into our lived realities – the statistics and sociological condition of women of color, our mundane everyday acts, the codes and rules we are disciplined into, and the myths we conjure to imagine our future possibilities.
