For colored girls who have considered suicide/ when the rainbow is enuf
By Ntozake Shange
Directed by Fatima Dyfan (COL ‘21)

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Black Theatre Ensemble, our company is returning to our roots by reproducing the organization's first production: For colored girls who have considered suicide/ when the rainbow is enuf. This acclaimed play interweaves seven women’s narratives about oppressions they have faced from being both Black and female. Shaped as a choreopoem, their mosaic of stories unfold through music, dance, and spoken word to provide Black women with the opportunity to reflect on what it truly means to be a woman of color. Although grief is central, the expressive form of this play is a celebration of the triumph and everlasting vitality of the Black woman in spite of adversity.

Please note: originally scheduled Thursday, Nov. 8 show was cancelled.
