USA/1974

Through music, poetry and dance, seven women weave their stories of love, heartache, violence and joy into a powerful mosaic of the experiences of African-American women. This seminal work celebrates the power of reclaiming one’s voice.

for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf is more than a poetic drama, more than a dance performance, more than a celebration of the dreams and aspirations, or the profound losses of the women of colour whose stories populate this extraordinary work. At its very core, for colored girls... is a powerful enchantment; an aesthetic exultation; a love song; a healing.” – Director Djanet Sears
