Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture (515 Malcolm X Blvd., Manhattan)
The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, in association with Tracy Jack and Alfred Preisser, presents New Theater Voices @ the Schomburg Center, a play reading series dedicated to emerging African-American playwrights.
This month’s reading showcases Denise D. Odom’s Etchings of Soul Women.
Directed by: Libya Pugh
Featuring: Sheena K. Earl, Tia James, Janelle Mims and Kimberley Dalton Mitchell
Described as “A Dramatic Poetry Piece,” Etchings of Soul Women is a poetic tale of womanhood experiences, love, sex, confusion, strength, and all the nuances that begin a journey towards self-discovery, self-empowerment, and ultimately self-love.
“As each of us ‘soul’ women etch our own stories into the tapestry that we call life; the most crazy, complex, beautiful and amazing stories are created. Through our collective stories we bring light to some of the deepest, at times, most painful and haunting, and yet at others most innocent and beautiful of our experiences. I can only hope a piece like ‘Etchings’ can share just a sample of what we women give, take and endure in this world.” ~Denise D. Odom
