A creative opportunity unlike any other in Minnesota, Naked Stages is the culmination of a 7 month training fellowship that provides three emerging performance artists with the time, resources, and mentorship they need to bring their distinctive visions to life on stage. This year’s Fellows are Queen Drea, Hawona Sullivan Janzen, & Amoke Awele Kubat. Join us for two weekends of performances showcasing their new works!

Queen Drea’s Soul Chamber: The Chaos Inside
by Queen Drea
Directed by Signe Harriday

Queen Drea’s Soul Chamber: The Chaos Inside is an aural, comedic and movement- based exploration into chaos inside of QD’s mind. Sometimes the chaos enhances creative spirit, sometimes it opens memory, sometimes it conjures a whole lot of wisecracks, and often it leaves a composition undone till the last possible moment. I mean, it’s chaos, so what do you expect?

Good Old Pussy and Old Good Pussy
by Amoke Awele Kubat
Directed by Maren Ward

Amoke’s project, Good Old Pussy and Old Good Pussy (aka Good Old Kit Kat and Old Good Kit Kat) is about Black women’s UNSAIDS about AGING; mind, body, and sexuality. This work explores the historical and continual objectification of Black female bodies from slavery to medical progress and bioethics, educational institutions, the workplace and contemporary media images.

Hydro’s Phobia
by Hawona Sullivan Janzen
Directed by Mankwe Ndosi

Hydro’s Phobia is the true-false story of Hydro, a healer woman who struggles with a profound fear of water. Moments of her life are revealed through a series of narratives performed by tour guides from her dreams. One part performance art, one part self-help book, and three parts fantasy, Hydro’s Phobia is a living ode, a love-poem for anyone who has ever been afraid.
