The Oakland based performance ritual, House/Full of Black Women, that has taken place over the past year with more than 10 "episodes," will be presented on March 15 as part of BACCE's So Soul San Francisco: Black Art Salons. Created by Amara Tabor Smith and Ellen Sebastian Chang, House/Full of Black Women is one of the most important and groundbreaking creative undertakings to come along in awhile. It is part of a large, ambitious and critical undertaking. On the shoulders of performing arts ancestors Barbara Ann Teer who believed in theater as a ritual for Black Liberation, House Full was created to engender the holistic well being of Black women, addressing issues of displacement, sex trafficking and invisibility - and so much more.
Listen to Amara Tabor Smith speak to the project here - pure genius!
House Full of Black Women will take place on March 15, 7pm in Brava's Cabaret. Tickets and information here.
