Director: Tylina Swinger
for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf is Ntozake Shange’s first work and most acclaimed theater piece. It consists of a series of poetic monologues to be accompanied by dance movements and music, a form Shange coined as the choreopoem.
A black woman explores seven facets of herself and emerges as a stronger person in Ntzoke Shange’s “choreo-poem.”
for colored girls… tells the stories of seven women who have suffered oppression in a racist and sexist society.
