i am magic (WORLD PREMIERE)
Addison Theatre Center
May 27-29, 8:00 PM (Fri/Sat) & 3:00 PM (Sun)
i am magic, a film and choreo-poem, examines the narratives of Black Women and creatives of the 20th and 21st Century. Relevant to the times, this work focuses on women who used their art and experiences as a catalyst for social change. Artists such as Cisely Tyson, Angela Davis, Gwendolyn Brooks, Nina Simone, Eartha Kitt, Audre Lorde, Katherine Dunham, Billie Holiday, Dr. Pearl Primus, Nikki Giovanni, Lorraine Hansberry, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sarah Vaughn, among others, were instrumental in promulgating social justice and imbedding the Civil Rights philosophy into the minds and hearts of Americans.
We honor these women through music, dance and brilliant poetry written by author, film director and activist, Kevin Powell. These women rose above systems of oppression and through their talent and genius, advocated for the change they wanted to see in the world. They are representative of our mothers, aunts, sisters, friends, constituents, and artists who live amongst us, creating magic in every sense of the word.
i am magic (film) is made possible through the Moody Fund for the Arts and will be a featured film on B. MOORE DANCE digital platform, Dances on the Reel.
I am magic (choreopoem) will premiere at Addison Theatre Center.
