Defying Boundaries- Performance as Method: An evening with Sage Xaxua Morgan-Hubbard
Join us for a performance reading, peace circle and workshop
Thursday, October 25 2:30pm-6:30pm | DePaul Art Museum | 2nd Floor
Doors open at 2:00 light snacks will be served
Sage will read a performance except from her new play ‘Mixed Mamas’. Combining her love for the four women who raised her, ‘Mixed Mamas’ is a celebration of motherhood, womanhood, race, ethnicity, femininity, vulgarity, funkiness and grace. Mixed Mamas is about mixing life up and making it your own. It is about being independent and part of a community of your choosing at the same time…a showcase of women who defy boundaries and survive despite obstacles. Mixed Mamas is about women’s first encounter of love- their mothers.
Afterward Sage will co-hold a peace circle with Misty De Berry followed by a performance writing workshop highlighting themes within the performance.
