This event is presented by Illinois Humanities grantee partner Honey Pot Performance.

Ladies Ring Shout 2.0 is a Black feminist quality-of-life performance project, first created and performed in 2011. 

This restaging/reimagining features HPP’s artistic core alongside an intergenerational community cast of Black women/femmes who have worked in collaboration with HPP to devise a new iteration of the work. 

Ladies Ring Shout 2.0 focuses on themes critical to Black women and femmes’ lives such as representation, love and relationships, scars/trauma, work-life balance, quality of life, nurturing and parenting, spirituality, healing, and defining our communities of care. Creative writing and embodied exercises are supplemented with experiments in other artistic mediums including collective play with still image, video, audio, and reading excerpts from the work of relevant BIPOC women writers and poets.

Performances will take place at Wirtz Theater (Room 203) at Virginia Wadsworth Wirtz Center for Performing and Media Arts, 710 N Lake Shore Drive, Chicago. Tickets are $8-$15. A per ticket service charge will be added to purchases made online and over the phone.
