Voices: Past Performances

Written by Celeste Willis and David Woods, directed by David Woods

 This play consisting of monologues, acted sequences, contemporary dance pieces, poetry, and original music, examines contemporary life and issues of Black women in Nova Scotia. The play was heavily influenced by Ntozake Shange’s famous choreo-drama ‘For Colored Girls Who Thought of Committing Suicide’.


Performance History

The play made its debut as part of the 1996 Black History Month program at Halifax North Branch Library. Individual components of the play were later developed as solo performance pieces.
