"Paige in Full"
Paige in Full is a visual mix-tape that blends poetry, dance, visual arts, and music to tell the tale of a multicultural girl growing up in Baltimore, MD. The production explores how a young woman’s identity is shaped by her ethnicity and popular culture; telling a personal, yet universal story through the lens of hip-hop. The performance is an autobiographical, one-hour show that grabs the audience by the throat and doesn’t let them go. Part comedy, part pain, and part retrospective on growing up in Baltimore in the late 80’s and early 90’s, we experience Paige trying desperately to fit in before finding her voice and accepting herself. Her tale winds its way through elementary school, telling the story of the pretty b-girl with a mind and heart on hip hop from age 8, who memorized dance routines of the fly girls from “In Living Color.” Somewhere along the way we snake through the streets of Baltimore and DC, learning what each place has meant to Paige. We explore love and its changing concept from sweet, to abusive, to the most coveted of them all, “real love.”
Suitable for grades 5 and up.
After school workshops are held at The Boys and Girls Club of Geneva on February 7th. Seats are limited. Call Box Office for reservations and more details.
