Mama Juggs Remixed -Three Generations Healing Negative Body Images
TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE!
n the 80' and 90s, 'rie Shontel grew up in 13th Avenue and East 17th's notorious neighborhood known as "FunkTown."
'rie's courageously gritty performance in Mama Juggs draws on three generations of powerful matriarchs that influenced her upbringing. 'rie artfully transitions between deep complex characters to show how song, laughter and candor can heal.

Special guest, West Coast Blues Hall of Famer and Oakland native, Augusta Lee Collins will accompany 'rie throughout the show with live acoustic guitar and singing.
'rie (nickname of the performers mother) channels how the characters deal with breast cancer, late puberty bra stuffing, and the frustrations of breast-feeding. Acapella breast- feeding songs passed down from rie's great-grandmother are included in Mama Juggs.
Together, 'rie Shontel's three characters will heal their negative self images by boldly questioning cultural taboos in the black community.
