The concept of Black Women in Theatre has been in demand by artists who follow PIECE OF MINE Arts for a number of years, although we did not have the capacity with several projects on the go. February 2020 has presented itself as a prime time to finally realize this project and give it the space to manifest in its own right—and not in comparison to our successful Black Men in Theatre counterpart. The opportunities that nurture Black women’s stories have shrunk in the city with the void of b current’s rock.paper.sistahz festival spearheaded by ahdri zhina mandiela and the AfriCanadian Playwright’s Festival founded by Djanet Sears. Black Women in Theatre will be a resurgence for professional artists, who identify as Black women, to have the freedom to flesh out work, receive dramaturgical support, and connect with an audience hungry for their stories.
