PowerPlay - Latasha Alcindor and Nona Hendryx @ The Shed (NYC)
The Shed’s inaugural season will also include Powerplay, a collaboration between Latasha Alcindor and Dis Obey (The Shed’s program for teenagers), on May 18 and 19. Student Nathaniel Swanson, Latasha Alcindor and student Lela Harper perform along with others. Powerplay will mix hip-hop, spoken word, dance and moving image into a woman-centered show, organized under the direction of rising multimedia artist Latasha Alcindor. “The performance is really about how we can transform radical joy into power,” says Alcindor. Participants will include student artists from The Shed’s Dis Obey program for high schoolers, who explore protest and creative action through writing, storytelling and visual art workshops.
