For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow is Enuf
- This show is part of Stockholm Fringe Festival (#STOFFX) -
En 70-talsklassiker av den ikoniska Afro-Amerikanska författaren Ntozake Shange vars tidlösa verk hörs starkare av #MeToo-eran.
New Nordic Voices presents a packaged series of classic theatre productions that explore selected works of Nordic icons as juxtaposed alongside global south icons. Each production will bear ACT's unique vision of having "Multiple Cultures Sharing A Stage" through a composite inter-cultural mix of performing artists of divergent ethnic backgrounds but all domiciled across the Nordic countries primarily but not exclusively. "for colored girls..." is the first production under the auspice of New Nordic Voices. The theatre piece is performed by a cast of seven nameless women only identified by the colors they are assigned.
Welcome to a Q&A before the performance the 6th september with the cast of New Nordic Voices about the play "For colored girls who have considered suicide/ when the Rainbow is enuf." National Black Theatre of Sweden is joining the talk to discuss their work with NBTS – a consistent platform to African and Afro-Swedish plays, stories and African descent artists. We will reflect on cultural diversification on stage and the importance of intersectional platforms within the cultural sector.
In the panel:
Michael Omoke, artistic director, New Nordic Voices
Dr. Shirley Basfield Dunlap, stage director of Colored girls
Dew Mandonsela, actress in the play, New Nordic Voices
Josette Bushell-Mingo, artistic architect, National Black Theatre of Sweden
