Sovereign: A Black Queer One-Womyn Show Festival

Aishe´ Keita - Griot
(Program 1 - 1/9 @ 7:30pm; 1/12 @ 7:30pm)
A solo performance constructed around the root of storytelling in West African tradition, in specific Mali. In Malian culture the Griot is the keeper of African history, stories, and rituals. In this solo performance, Aishé is Griot and represents multi characters from her ancestral family tree sculpting language around loss and the decolonization of grief. What will become of us when we remember the fullness of life's cycle? What parts of you come alive after loss?

'Grief is soul cleaning to reclaim and recover our spirits' said by Sobonfu Some'. This piece draws on childhood memories of dancing with spirits through slave house in Kingston, Jamaica , singing to mango trees , family gatherings and my father. Griot will hold space through movement, ritual, songs and storytelling. Aishé invites in conversation about what it is for us to 'go back and get it' claim our traditions through unapologetic blackness. Can we grieve in a way so that we don't lose who we are?

Aviona RodriguezBrown - Aviona
(Program 2 - 1/10 @ 7:30pm; 1/12 @ 5:30pm)
Her name Aviona, derives from the Spanish word Avion, which means flight or airplane. With such a powerful namesake, she still hides behind shame. But no more! It's time to fly free! As the 2nd blended child into a Mexican family she searches through acceptance of herself , when all she wanted to be and look like was all the other girls in her family.

Naa Akua - Akwaaba
(Program 2 - 1/10 @ 7:30pm; 1/12 @ 5:30pm)
A one person show that takes you on a personal journey into the realization that there is no complete resolve to the full healing of oneself, but there is always a beginning, a start to the process, and a determination. Naa Akua creates a space of expression through poetry, sound, ritual, and monologue. Naa says Akwaaba (welcome) to the stories of the when, what, why, and how there is healing for the Queer Black Soul.

Briq House - Lessons from the Pulpit
(Program 3 - 1/11 @ 7:30pm; 1/12 @ 9:30pm)
is a culmination of burlesque, storytelling, and drama, drama, drama. Briq House pulls from the depths of Black Christian church rhetoric, and teaches the audience the real rules of the world based on the 'Good Book of Briq.' Though there will be plenty of hand clapping, and dollar throwing (as per her orders), she will also drag your emotions through the mud and dare you to come out clean on the other side. Patience Sings - Good Grief
(Program 3 - 1/11 @ 7:30pm; 1/12 @ 9:30pm)
is a memorial to grieving women, to women traveling through realms to find peace, to children who do not understand, to wives left to understand, to parents who shouldn't have to understand. The healing vocal talents and masterful words of Patience Sings is a welcoming home of spirit to self.
