Stormy Weather

October 2019 I ATLAS

INspired by Shakespeare’s THE TEMPEST, the story of colonization and subjugation is retold from the perspective of Sycorax, mother of Caliban and mistress of Ariel. Without voice in the original, here she has the agency to present her own journey. Told with the music of Billie Holiday (My Man, Strange Fruit, Don’t Explain, God Bless the Child), in poetic-prose written by Sybil Williams, this cabaret-club evening of song, word, and beat explores the experience of peoples enslaved by privilege and even love.
