Sistah Solo
Being Brothas


The sistahs are in the house, the Brothas are in the building...

Sistah Solo
Strong.  Sophisticated.  Spiritual.
Collectively celebrate women of color and their solo work through film, dance, music, spoken word and more. The multilayered dynamics unfold to create a bond that is powerful and inspiring! Sistah Solo has sold out shows since its premiere in 2011.

Being Brothas
Bold.  Brilliant.  Breathtaking.
The unique voices of men of color are uplifted through movement, music and more. Transferred experiences shared individually and collectively promote a connection of understanding like none other! May 2015 marked the inaugural sold out performance of Being Brothas.
