Ianne Named One of the 2017 John Lewis Fellows with Humanity in Action

Humanity in Action's programs concern human rights activities generally, but they focus specifically on the relationship between majority and minority groups in the countries in which the programs take place. The John Lewis Fellowship will focus on issues of diversity within the United States, with a particular emphasis on restorative justice in Georgia. The Fellowship's restorative justice framework grounds the program and directs the Fellows’ to address specific, substantive, civil and human rights issues, such as education, public health, urban development, and policing. In 2017, the Fellowship will place a greater emphasis on community engagement and the impact of the fellowship programming on the public at large in Atlanta.  

For four weeks, the United States and Atlanta will serve as case studies to broaden and challenge Fellows’ understanding of human rights issues. Fellows apply the knowledge and skills gained from their Fellowship experience to strengthen their work in their own communities around the world.

Performer, MTF Presents: Lift Every Voice at Joe's Pub

Screen Shot 2017-12-28 at 9.53.24 PM.png

Musical Theatre Factory @ Joe's Pub presents "Lift Every Voice," bringing exciting musical theatre writers of color from the margins to centerstage! Come hear a night of new musical theatre songs ranging from pop/rock to hip hop to jazz in a concert unlike any other-- because every single thrilling song is written by a person of color. Featuring writers such as Troy Anthony, David Davila, David Gomez, Edison Hong, Khiyon Hursey, Sukari Jones, John-Michael Lyles, Douglas Lyons, Michael R. Jackson, Brett Macias, Cheeyang Ng, Janet Noh, Ronve O'Daniel, Jerome Parker, Noemi de la Puente, Lauren F. Walker and more! The evening is music directed by Darius Smith and directed by Tamilla Woodard. Curated by Natasha Sinha and Sukari Jones, from MTF's People of Color Roundtable. Line produced by MTF Outreach Coordinator Aaron Salley.

Musical Theatre Factory's People of Color Representation Roundtable exists as a one-of-a-kind experiment wherein a room of artists of all disciplines may share work with a group that is 100% exclusively comprised of people of color. Part writers circle, part discussion forum and part low-key performance salon. By founding the POC Roundtable, Musical Theatre Factory aims to decenter whiteness and to ask the question of what musical theatre could be made, would be made, if the room where it happens happened to be a room comprised of a diverse group of people of color.

THIRD RUN! Theory/ Co-Creator, In Theory: Notes on Love, Home, Diaspora, and Failing Adulthood

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, IN THEORY is a dance and spoken word fusion that explores converting the pain of our past into the resistance of our future.

Growing up is supposed to mean forgetting the past. Adulthood is supposed to be a rite of passage. Learning the language for your trauma is supposed to mean you can move on from it.

But what happens when the whole world seems to thrive on the structural violence that destroyed your family? What does it mean to acknowledge that maybe your entire lineage is a history of trauma? And what happens when the people you have been, refuse to be left behind?

LADY QUEEN, Untameable (New York Acting Debut)

Co-Produced by Highly Impractical Theatre and The Unsoft War, Untameable pits diamond heist against museum intrigue and tells the tale of two women, one trying to steal a jewel and the other trying to keep it safe. The work is an immersive romp between a criminal den and a modern museum; the audience navigates their own experience and much like the characters themselves, must decide between love and diamonds, honesty or victory.  Stealing this diamond is Nel's (Vicki Rodriguez) main magnum opus. Her other is falling in love. Which slightly complicates matters when her fiancée Cabel (Annie-Sage Whitehurst) is running the exhibit of the diamond she's aiming to steal. Untameable is a tale of diamond-crossed lovers and of rescuing a stone and getting it back to its origin country. The action is played simultaneously in La Acadé, the theives' hideaway, and The MAFM, the museum showing the diamond, and is punctuated with dance sequences detailing the origin love story of the Boy Prince (Nikita Chaudhry) who originally owned the diamond and the Lady Queen (Ian Fields Stewart) who stole it from him many eons ago. Untameable is an investigation into what we will do to achieve our magnum opus and what gets lost in the winning. Get your tickets at http://untameable.bpt.me .
