Lost in Language and Sound

651 invites you to be the first audience to experience Ntozake Shange‘s new project, Lost in Language and Sound, during a work-in-progress performance. Ms. Shange, who this year celebrates the 40th anniversary of her groundbreaking for colored girls…, explores the intuition of an artist of color in the 21st century though poetry, monologues, and musical arrangement by Michael Ray.

Directed by Rhodessa Jones and choreographed by Dianne McIntyre, the ensemble of poets, actors, musicians, and dancers, challenges the many barriers confronting artists of color through a multidisciplinary prism. The text is drawn from Ntozake Shange’s acclaimed collection of essays by the same name.
