In "Three Hysterical Women: Explorations of 'Feminine' Rage," three original, solo theatrical pieces will be curated into one 60-minute production exploring issues of inclusion and social disparity, including purported gender roles and racial assumptions and stereotypes:
"Being B.A.D." by Brittney S. Harris
"Being B.A.D." is a piece about personal acceptance and redemption from the cycle of abuse. This piece explores the lengths in which one decides to take that power back after years of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of her family, friends, and romantic partners. 1 in 4: It’s not just a number, it’s a declaration for change.
"Brainwashed: Hair, A Ritual" by Devair Jeffries
This piece explores the inner psychosis of a Black woman’s journey to embrace her natural hair while other people have strong opinions and often make assumptions about her racial identity regardless of how she wears it. She ultimately decides to persist in loving her hair as well as herself, resisting the urge to be brainwashed by other people’s perceptions.
"Sisrahtac 1" by Nicole Dietze
"Sisrahtac 1" takes the audience on a gondola ride through the waterlogged insides of one woman, “like Jonah inside the big fish.” Through humor and movement sequences, this piece dances with the surreal and absurd while studying the effects of social and political forces on the individual human heart.
