Produced by Shalonda Ingram

Notable Quotes

Where My Girls At?, written and performed by the talented Micia Mosely, is a laugh-out-loud comedy that pushes the envelope in too many ways to describe…Where My Girls At? is a great night out and a shining example of what a talented and flexible mind can do when given the freedom.”

-New York Amsterdam News

“Where My Girls At? was a rich multi-layered experience that provided a dissertation into being black and lesbian including having the audience rate by applause which of the “contestants” was the most black, which was the most “womanly” and which was the most “lesbian”. I didn’t stop laughing during this whirlwind performance by an extremely talented artist.  As a matter of fact it wasn’t until I sat down to write this review that I noticed the “medicine” of this show was so cleverly hidden in the candy.”

Where My Girls At?

July 8, 2010 by  
Filed under

“Where My Girls At?” is a “thoughtful, provocative, and insanely funny” one woman show written and performed by the “multi-talented” Micia Mosely. Portraying five drastically different characters representing the diversity of Black lesbian experiences, Micia challenges the notion that there is only one way to be Black or queer in the 21st century. A phenomenal one hour performance steeped in improv and audience participation, Where My Girls At? has thrilled audiences across the country from San Francisco, Detroit and New York to Amherst, Chapel Hill and Honolulu. A New York Innovative Theater Award Nominee, the show, while hilarious, continues to tackle difficult issues including inter and intra-group racism, sexism, and homophobia.


Written & Performed by Micia Mosely

Directed by Tamilla Woodard

Produced by Shalonda Ingram

Queer Art Impact

Queer Art Impact (QAI) is a new collaboration between Brooklyn-based Artistic Director, Mat Heggem and Nursha Project Founder, Shalonda Ingram. QAI explores the conversation between politics and art. The New York City-based initiative is intended to bring together individuals and organizations who self-identify their body of work as queer. By presenting artists whose works challenge the hetero-normative, QAI seeks to embrace self-identified queerness and create opportunities for all artists, living in the political and social fringe, to move to the center.

 

Viewpoint

Created by Shannyn Vicente and Shalonda Ingram, Viewpoint explores a shared desire to live into the truth of loving through and across the lines of fear, anger, and mistrust. A commitment to move through the ever-evolving painful realities of the social constructs that binds, traps, and perpetuates Dis.Ease in the mind.
