Where? Bagarmossens Folkets Hus, Lillåvägen 44, 128 45 Bagarmossen
Registration? Free of charge but limited spots. Reserve your spot here!
The workshop is a part of the performance of “For colored girls who have considered suicide/ when the Rainbow is enuf” by poet and playwright Ntozake Shange. The play tells the stories of seven women who have suffered oppression in a racist and sexist society while echoing abandonment, sisterhood, domestic violence and female empowerment. It is a collection of 20 choreopoems, woven together by seven women on stage. The award-winning play was first performed in 1976 and remains relevant today. The workshop and performance is a part of the project New Nordic Voices
and will be touring Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark during 2019.
