Part of the 2024 New Works Festival | Original Plays written and directed by the 2023-2024 Incubator/Mentor Cohort


The first part of a trilogy telling the story of Virginia Mary, an enslaved African American woman transformed after her death by an unquiet and demanding dybuuk. Virginia Mary’s trauma haunts her descendants throughout time. Through her voice and vignettes of women in her family, this choreopoem, rooted in dance, music, and the lineage of African American narratives, explores the connections between the stories and histories our bodies tell, demanding an answer to the question, “What are they doing with our uteruses?”
