"For Colored Boyz" is a series of poetic monologues to be accompanied by dance movements and music, a form originated by Ntozake Shange who coined the term "choreopoem." "For Colored Boyz" tells the stories of five men who have suffered oppression in a racist society. Our show is inspired by the award winning choreopoem for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbows enuff written by Ntozake Shange. This choreopoem centers around five men of color navigating through the past, present and what seems to be the future in a world where disenfranchisement, racism, hyper-masculinity and stereotypes are prevalent. Starring: Amir Diamond, Jeremiah C. Gray, Gregory Malonson II, Kristopher Adams, Marvin Young, and Coley Aguillard. Written, directed and choreographed by Bryan-Keyth Wilson. Join us on Opening Night, March 29th and walk down our red carpet. The who's who of H-town will be in the building and after the show come party with the creative team and cast! This is a night you don't want to miss! [Organizer's description]
