Cartons of Ultrasounds by TS Hawkins at (re)FOCUS FEST!

April 5, 2018 - April 8, 2018

Event Navigation

(re)FOCUS Fest 2018 brings together four theatre makers to explore what it means to reclaim and to celebrate diversity through shared performance. Through poetic dialogue, immersive soundscapes, and lyrical movement, Kaleid Theatre, Pratima Agrawal, Alma’s Engine, and TS Hawkins meditate on gender, race, sexuality, class, and everything in between. (re)FOCUS Fest is a chance to (re)focus on themes that are all around us, but difficult to see, explore, and discuss. It is a celebration of our ability to confront ourselves, learn from each other, and rejoice in the myriad of experiences that make us who we are. www.refocusfest.org 

ABOUT THE PLAY
Cartons of Ultrasounds, by TS Hawkins and directed by Cheyenne Barboza, unpacks how the societal machine churns embryos, girls, and womyn, into seclusion; waterboarding their freedom and manufacturing their wombs with assembly-line legislature. Prisoners to their gender, society has become the parasitic conjoined twin of the dogmatic cycle extending life sentences of female identified invalidation. With scantily clad images, pejorative song lyrics, and abusive homes heightening the maltreatment of the female form, we teach womyn to be the missing, the raped, and the forgotten. www.tspoetics.com
