Don’t miss Culture Project’s latest show Expatriate. Written and composed byacclaimed poet/performer Lenelle Moise, Expatriate is a brand-new, two-woman play with music that pays homage to the spirit of Nina Simone, Josephine Baker and the Hottentot Venus .
Claudie and Alphine are sexy, sophisticated performing artists and oldest childhood friends. Fighting grief, homophobia and the black glass ceiling, they flee to Europe to realize their dreams of musical stardom. They support themselves as performers on the streets of Paris, and soon rise to fame and fortune as singing group ³Black Venus. But as Claudie and Alphine soon discover, for some Black artists living abroad, stardom comes at a steep price.
In this hot new drama, real life rising co-stars Lenelle Moïse and Karla Mosley make soulful, blues-inspired music (with only a JamMan loop machine!) as they weave the story of Black Venus's rise to fame. Directed by Tamilla Woodard. Choreography by Nicco Annan.Tickets cost just $25 with the code: EXP2K8ST! Get your tickets here!
