Ma(s)king Her is an AfroSurrealist dance theater work centered on women of color as empowered future beings, countering a real life narrative where their presence is often subjugated to silence and/or invisibility. Honey Pot Performance (HPP), our creative collaborative of women artists, has been developing this project over the past year using a unique, community-driven process that involves public workshops and draws upon Black feminist fiction and theory. Our work has resulted in a dynamic script that will introduce iconic characters and a story that are directly reflective of the community’s creative input. With this campaign, we are seeking contributions to help us stage a full production of Ma(s)king Her on April 14-16 at Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.
HPP is at an exciting moment in our development as a creative collective. Our work, rooted in transformative change through intimate encounters of performance and shared space, continues to evolve and grow. Ma(s)king Her is a testament to this commitment to community-driven creative processes.
We invite you to join us as donors to help us realize our newest evening-length work. Make your donation to the 3AP campaign here!
