1816 N Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

When: Nov. 16, 17, and 18. 8:00pm - 10:00pm

CostTickets are $17-$25 ($15-$17 Senior/Student discount).

Celebrating, and empowering, through works from some of the nations most artistically significant Black female voices, KTC’s Skylight Theatre is providing a home for this unique world premiere, five-week production. Featuring new plays, visual arts, and community events, collaborators have created this platform for encouraging Black women to self-identify as dynamic, expressive, and nurturing contributors to society.

“Black Women State of the Union seeks to uncover the present: where we are now, what is the state of us now. That can only continue to propel us forward. We have plays that represent who we were, but it also speaks to who we are, where we are, where we’re going and who we are becoming.” - Director Nataki Garrett

Offerings will include Sigrid Gilmer’s Simulacra, which pokes fun at the representations of Black women in recent feature films; Lisa B. Thompson’s I Don’t Want to Be, about the ties of survival that strengthen the mothers of innocent crime victims; Kellie Dantzler’ Evolutionary takes a look at a prominent Civil Rights activist mother giving deathbed advise on the need for humor; Tanya Alexander-Henderson’s Ritual is a poetic inspirational meditation; and Penelope Lowder’s The Follicle Prison War, an hilarious parody about notions of beauty and hair weaves set in the future.

BLACK WOMEN: STATE OF THE UNION-Taking Flight opens October 27th and runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm through November 18, 2012. The Skylight Theatre is located at 1816 N. Vermont, LA, 90027. Tickets are $17-$25 ($15-$17 Senior/Student discount). Reservations: 702 KTC-TKTS (702-582-8587) or online at www.ktctickets.com
