To Call You My Own by Kevin Murphy

Art is how we express ourselves. When an Artist's painting suddenly comes to life, he gains a new passion through his newfound kinship. With an opening in an exhibition looming and their partner becoming exhausted from supporting the household, the Artist must come to terms with letting their Art speak for itself, and letting go of the past. 


Starring Mia Pincekova as SUPPORT and Rachel Verhoef as ART. ARTIST played by Kevin Murphy.

Tina by Kyrah Ie

TINA- is the name of this performance. It aims to establish a connection between the historical, social, and cultural meaning of the mandjuandadi and Tina (musical instruments played only by women) among Guinea Bissau women and my experiences as an immigrant African black woman over the years.

We're Like Sisters by Holly Kasselder

We're Like Sisters is a comical (at times unhinged) autobiographical one-woman show that explores the relationships I have with each of my three sisters, what factors caused these relationships to break down, and documents my experiences growing up in a blended family. This work-in-progress showing/stand-up comedy routine gone off the rails explores themes of abandonment, body shaming, and aims to dispel the patriarchal ideals surrounding family, and will explore the feeling of otherness that comes from having half and step-siblings. We’re Like Sisters will be produced in full later this year as part of my PhD, which is examining the performer/audience relationship within autobiographical performance and clarifying what the relationship looks like within my own performance practice.  Follow @_hollyjk on Instagram for more information
