Brittany Harlin presents Don’t Forget Your Mother
June 6 at 8:30 p.m.
June 8 at 8 p.m.
Edge Theater, 5451 N. Broadway
Runtime: 60 minutes
Harlin’s choreographic memoir is dedicated to her mothers here on Earth and her ancestors beyond. Using storytelling, poetry, song and dance, and accompanied by a live band, the performance by four dancers and four musicians connects Harlin’s personal experience with trauma to pieces of African Diasporic culture, granting herself the heritage that threatens to be erased over time

Collaborators on June 8 include: Boyan Matsapola (bass), Page Kallop (Guitar), and dancers Jordan Ordonez, Sid Tucky, and Nicholas Sapp
