“Sovereign” Showcases Black Queer Womyn’s Performance Art


Here’s an interesting theater festival that showcases the voices and stories of black, queer womyn. It’s the SOVEREIGN FESTIVAL happening at the 18th & Union Theater space NEXT weekend, Thursday November 9th through Sunday, November 12th.

Here’s the scoop:

a production of Earth Pearl Collective

Seattle’s First Black Queer One Womyn Show Festival, Sovereign highlights the multifaceted talents of black queer womyn. In its inaugural year the spectrum of shows range from new artists to the scene like Angel Gardner to an evening of comedic realness by Om Jahari, joined by veteran performer and Civic Poet Anastacia Renee, and many more. The intersections of these womyn’s stories are as empowering as they are heart breaking and evocative.

Featuring: Anastacia Renee, Om Jahari, Namii, Angel Gardner, Po’Chop, and Amber Flame
