CuBlack: Invisiblized No Further! | Produced by Melissa Cobblah Guttierrez | A dance film that analyzes the “invisibilized” oppression of Blackness inside the Cuban community and investigates how it has impacted Miami.
My Black Body Is | Produced by Kunya Rowley | How does it feel to inhabit a body that is revered, detested, over-sexualized, ridiculed, fetishized, profaned, killed? Black art song and negro spirituals will provide the foundation to create this performance of celebration & reclamation of blackness that is part concert, part spoken word, and wholly theatrical.
Rosewater | Produced by Michelle Grant-Murray | RoseWater is a dance ritual inspired by the ancestral practice of rosewater baths prepared by the artist’s grandmother. The performance blends sobering revelation with hopeful inquiry, calling for transformational change and the acknowledgment of the multigenerational legacy of healing and restoration passed down through ancestral lines in Black communities.
