Greetings Fabulous People!
I hope this email finds you warm and renewed as we enter this Spring season.
To share or not to share? That is the question...so next month I’m trying something new and will be posting snippets of rehearsals for the Rock Solid Women’s Festival on my Instagram page @nonahendryx. Follow along to get a glimpse of us in action.
This past weekend in Boston students performed in Digital Forest at Berklee College, April 20th. It was a joyous affair. Join us next time in New York, May 18th & May 19th, for POWER PLAY an original production created for The Shed by emerging multimedia artist LATASHÁ in collaboration with special guest artists and participants: Rosangelica Lopez, Ashley August, Monique Letamendi, Bembona, Joshua Negron, Nathaniel Swanson, Lela Harper, The Illuminator Project, Imani Nia, and NYC high school students. I’m one of the collaborators, mentors, and fellow performers!
