PIECE OF MINE presents Works by Natasha Adiyana Morris
Homegrown, award-winning, new-kid-on-the-block playwright Natasha Adiyana Morris presents workshop productions of 'The Negroes Are Congregating' and 'half n' half.' The 5-day run also includes a producer talk for emerging theatre creators.
// THE NEGROES ARE CONGREGATING //
The Negroes Are Congregating is a personal and contemporary piece delving into the psyche of generational internalized racism. Delivered through a fusion of spoken word, satire, and soulful dialect; audiences will enter a realm of private truths and leave with an understanding of what it means to be Black, proud, and ready in Canada.
Starring: Angaer Arop, David Delisca, and Dennis Langley.
Running time 1 hour followed by a 30-minute talkback.
// HALF N' HALF //
Written and performed by Natasha Adiyana Morris
Directed by Amanda Nicholls
Join Dr. Bitter’s studio audience for another taping of ‘The ‘R’ Word,’ a live talk show that tackles viewer relationships questions. During commercial breaks, the questions linger and unravel into perspectives on what it means to be someone's 'other half.' Delivered through rhythm and humour, Dr. Bitter prescribes a double-dose of self-reflection.
Running time 1 hour.
