Ladies Ring Shout: performance as a way to community

The Ladies Ring Shout as a Performance was born of a weekly workshop, dialoguing space, and “jam session” for women.

Participants talked, wrote and moved in the spirit of collaborative experimentation and explored what an urban feminine discourse looks and feels like. What are our notions of an Urban Feminine? What is her legacy to/for future women/humans? What defines the urban woman’s community?

LRS is comprised of three core members Felicia Holman, Abra Johnson and Meida McNeal, who proclaim:

Performance is our therapy, our catharsis, our way to community. Performance is the haven that welcomes us to rediscover our own value and worth.  Performance and expression bring our dormant, unsaid emotions to the surface and urge us to work them out within a community that not only bears witness, but also empathizes through experience.
