Chicago Home Theatre Festival

 

 

I directed a live, improvisational performance specifically for the Chicago Home Theatre Festival.

The piece was about the complexities of what it might mean to be a hood girl and the conversation around that. The performers discussed relationships, generational wealth and being called a bitch.
