    Dancing On Hurt Feet

    An Artistic Uprising Featuring 3 Femme Badass Revolutionary Poets: Gina Loring, Jaha Zainabu & Aja Monet.

    Dancing on Hurt Feet is an innovative performance poetry project featuring the work of three unique women. In a powerful offering, the show is a platform for voices from the margins to emerge and take center stage. It is a celebration of black womanhood that embraces individuality with integrity, solidarity, and humor. In an era of complacent popular culture escapism and an almost entirely absent female voice from the most influential and most internationally exported form of music (hip hop), this project offers an alternative. From the recent series of murders of black and brown people at the hands of the police, to the Ferguson protests, to the "Bring back our girls" tragedy, to the rising domestic sex-trafficking epidemic of teenage girls of color nationwide, it is imperative now more than ever to create a space for the feminine voice: the mothers, wives, daughters and sisters who need to be heard. This project allows difficult issues to be addressed head-on with the vibrancy, intensity and fluidity of free verse poetry.
