Theater Alliance presents A Chorus Within Her (2020). A Devised Choreopoem by Gabrielle Brant Freeman, Glenis Redmond, Christine Sloan Stoddard, Carmin Wong, and the Ensemble.

They delight in Carmin Wong’s “Coming of Age,” which accumulates a series of verbs and adjectives to delineate the experiences of growing up female, told in the second person. Each finds multiple resonances in repeated phrases like “You run, you wait, you breathe, you twenty, you here.”

This is a beautiful and precious experience of the sacred and the profane, the absurd and the flat-out real, the mundane and the momentous that informs the decision we make, the paths we reject, and the way we present to the world. This is theatre for all of us.

Theater Alliance presents CRIMINALIZE ME! A PLAY OF POETRY AND PROVOCATION (2019)

How do young people navigate a system that doesn’t validate their humanity? Written by Carmin Wong, this play a series of 8 short films, each addressing a request made by the Black Lives Matter Movement.
