How to Catch A Flying Woman in the Nashville Pride by Cass Teague
Come experience an amazing new play by Cynthia C. Harris, free of charge presented by the Actors Bridge Ensemble in partnership with Nashville Public Library at the Main Nashville Public Library Auditorium, located at 615 Church St. The event runs from 3 pm – 5 pm on Saturday, May 25, 2019 (Memorial Day Weekend).
“I am incredibly excited to debut my latest work, How to Catch a Flying Woman(HTCAFW),” says Harris. “It’s been a long time coming. Here, I’ve written about my experiences in life, love and loss over the past decade. In all my work, I try to get to the essential truth of a thing. I need to understand the experiences that motivate human choices and set us on a certain course. HTCAFW allows us to consider the experience of being a woman with a vision, one that may be challenged familial and cultural pressures to conform rather than soar.”
The talented cast includes Nailah Ajamu, OlaOmi Amoloku, Deyonna (N’biyah) Fairbanks-Duskin, and Tasneem Grace Tewogbola, along with Harris.
“HTCAFW is a collection of meditations on flight, presented as a choreo-poem,” continues Harris. “Audience members are not only spectators, but participants in this community ritual of healing and transformation. As a beloved community, it is our responsibility to catch our flying women, should they fall from flight. Flying women inspire and transform everything they touch. Flying women are necessary. Flying women will lead us into the future.”
