Chronicle Y is a work in progress showing and is a work created as part of a trilogy, THE DARK GIRL CHRONICLES, which will premiere at The Shed in 2020.

THE DARK GIRL CHRONICLES is devised performance cycle set in a galaxy and erected in honor of black women that have been victims of state violence, including Rachel Jeantel, Cyntoia Brown, Islan Nettles, and Diamond Reynolds. Part Yoruba ritual, part devised manifesto, and part documentary theatre, each performance in the cycle focuses on cultivating the interiority and dignity “dark girls” are so often robbed of in the public arena by infusing these contemporary tragedies with the grandeur of Yoruba creation mythologies, the know-how of deep South remedies, and the time-honored wisdom of wonder.


Sliding Scale: $10 / $15 / $20
