Lisa McCree: Feeling blessed... I have been commissioned to work on a collaborative piece with three other writers, and we are creating a piece called: Mecca is Burning, under the residency of University of Pennsylvania. The venue is called: PENN LIVEARTS~ "Arguably the most successful Black theatre group in the world,” (American Theatre) the Negro Ensemble Company, our 22/23 season artist-in-residence, performs Mecca is Burning, a world premiere play juxtaposing 1960s protest poetry with our current social climate. This new work merges live music, dance, civil rights era poetry and contemporary writings that reflect on our nation’s recent racial reckoning, with additional inspiration from Ntozake Shange’s acclaimed theatre piece, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow is Enuf. Penn Live Arts is thrilled to co-produce and commission this meaningful exploration of social and racial themes, elevating the authentic, underrepresented stories of the Black experience. website:
