The obsession with the black woman’s hair addressed in a “one-woman show” by Maryline Chery

‘’AFRODISIAQUE’’

SHOW “ALONE ON STAGE” PRESENTED AT THE SEGAL CENTER

FROM 25 NOVEMBER

The Potomitan Theatrical Collective is presenting the show AFRODISIAQUE on November 25, 27 and 28 at the Segal Centre for the Performing Arts. Written and performed by actress Maryline Chery, AFRODISIAQUE is a theatrical solo that questions how the texture of black, brown and mixed-race women’s hair influences and impacts how they are perceived and treated in our society.

What attracts us so much in regards to the hair of black, brown or mixed woman? AFRODISIAQUE is a conversation, a reflection, a wound, and a healing of our past roots. This “one-woman” show gives voice to afro hair. Sometimes magical or tragic: through several bodies, stories and voices, come and meet Rhizome.
