When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Sept. 28 2019
Cleopatra Boy is an original play that uses the history of Cleopatra combined with music, choreography, bold design, and spoken word to illustrate how women, POC, and LGBTQIA+ individuals in positions of power risk losing control of their own images against the dominance of white patriarchy, resulting in false narratives and misrepresentations. The piece also pulls from restorative justice practices in order to reveal the motives of the Western tellers of Cleopatra’s story and address some of that misinformation, in service of a celebration of women, POC, and queer leaders—past, present, and future. Cleopatra Boy debuts September 13-28th, 2019 at Andy in Detroit.
Price: $5 - $20
