The Ladies Ring Shout
The Ladies Ring Shout
*World Premiere*
A production of Honey Pot Performance
Co-devised by Felicia Holman, Abra Johnson & Meida McNeal
Costumes 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.

August 4-6 2011 at the Defibrillator, 1136 N. Milwaukee
$10 online | $15 at the door

What critics are saying about The Ladies Ring Shout, seen recently as part of Collaboraction's Sketchbook Festival:

"Suspect Politic [a scene from LRS] takes a Bell Hooks approach to black feminism with its rat-a-tat series of questions, answers, and accusations covering 40 years of debate in eight minutes.."
-The Chicago Reader

"Part police interrogation, part poetry slam, the piece features some of the wittiest writing in the festival as it tears down stereotypes concerning the "highly accomplished, often angry, typically lonely, usually God-fearing, Essence magazine-reading Black Woman."
-Chicago Tribune

"The trio of Meida McNeal, Felicia Holman and Abra Johnson contributes a sharp take on African-American female experience in "Suspect Politic."
-Time Out Chicago
