We are so excited to be supporting Act Like a GRRRL, Inc. (ALAG) in northern Virginia July 11th – 24th. ALAG NoVA is in its fourth year. Our fearless leader, Cynthia Harris, has been a supporter and Guest Artist with the Nashville ALAG circle since the beginning. This is her first year the co-leading the program. She reports that things are going well! In fact, she couldn’t be happier. We hope she returns.
If you are in Washington, DC, July 21st – 24th, you don’t want to miss the show. The GRRRLs create original work, movement, and songs in one week. During the second week that work is transformed into a show AND performed as part of the Capital Fringe Festival.

She is a self-described Writer/ Performance Artist/ Dancer/ Activist/ Health Educator/ and proud southerner. A natural sign watcher, very much in tune with her surroundings, Ms. Harris finds it almost impossible not to hear the stories hovering around people. Growing up in a multi-talented family, she always felt at peace pursuing her creative interests. However when it came time to choose a career, Cynthia chose to focus on her parallel interest in health and graduated from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University with a BS in biology in 1999. Her subsequent work in the field of women’s reproductive health research fed her appreciation for the analytical and gave her the opportunity to study human behavior, leading her to not only be a vocal advocate for women’s health issues, but to create stories of empowerment.
Ms. Harris developed her weaving voices technique as she deepened her understanding of the intersection of performance art and public health. In 2017, Ms. Harris completed her Master of Public at Tennessee State University. In 2018, How to Catch a Flying Woman premiered and was commissioned in 2019 by Nashville Public Library. In 2022, The Calling is in the Body debuted with Actors Bridge Ensemble.
