Mamaz Muezz. Who am I? one's mother (especially as a child's term). a sexually attractive, usually mature woman. one's wife. to consider something thoughtfully. a woman, or a force personified as a woman, who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist. In mythology, the Muezzez were nine goddesses who symbolized the arts and sciences. To become absorbed in thought; especially : to turn something over in the mind meditatively and often inconclusively. To wonder, marvel, Who am I?
Mama'z Muezz is a theatrical piece that explores the questions who was I, who I am and who am I going to be from present day and historical vantage points of mothers of African Descent. This show is culled from a cross sections of realities, dreams and nightmares illuminating and intimately exploring artifacts of a collective condition. In examining the experiences of African-American mothers we will uncover what it means to be an individual beneath the hat of motherhood, learn what children teach their mothers (the truth), the rub of society against the fabric of their families (the struggles) and what nurtures and inspires their spirits (love, the living, and the ancestors).
