Inspired by an anonymous position paper written by women who were members of the Student Non Violent Coordinating Committee, "wash'd//" is a performance ritual conceived, choreographed, and directed by Ebony Noelle Golden. The ritual illuminates the struggles women activists experienced within movements for civil rights and the rights of black people in the 1960s and the time of now.
wash’d// has been developed in creative partnership with and performed by: Vesta Walker, Jaime Dzandu, and Audrey Hailes. The sound design/score was created by Petra Valoma.
The world premier of wash’d// is supported Dance Your Future: Artist & Mentor Collaborative Residency project produced by Pepatian in partnership with BAAD!/Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance. Additionally, wash’d// received early development support from National Black Theatre and a development residency at Double Edge Theatre.
