MAMA'S GUN: THE CHOREOGRAPHY OF MOTHERING WHILE BLACK
A mixture of concert dance, hip-hop theatre, and storytelling, Mama's Gun... explores the heart and physical labor of mothering from infancy to adulthood. The performance complicates the creative exploration by inserting the lens of mothers of unjustly slain Black and Brown youth, illuminating the experiences of Black mothers who've lost children to racial and other violence and discrimination. Mama's Gun is a unique performance experience, including two live DJs and a cast of 6 dancers. The production also includes moments containing strong language and discussions of racial violence.
