The Hue Festival: Up So Floating – Brown Soul Productions @ Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (Seattle – Central District)

By Lisa Price
Directed by Sadiqua Iman

Aria, an Afro/German Brazilian teenager moves to Brooklyn NY to live with her American father’s family after the disappearance of her mother. She is told by her grandmother that she must complete her Batizado, a rite of passage into womanhood, on her own. If done correctly, the ceremony has the magic to make miracles happen and maybe even bring her mother back. Will the secrets and disharmony amongst the adults in her life ruin her faith in humanity and keep her from tapping into her gift for creating miracles?

Part of The Hue Festival: A multi-night event of new play readings by BIPOC women writers, created with the mission to be a platform that holds space for new plays by women playwrights of color and provides these new works with an opportunity to live and breathe before a community of theater lovers while also giving playwrights the opportunity to hear their work out loud for future development. Presented May 22-25 by Brown Soul Productions, The Hansberry Project, and Seattle Public Theater, in partnership with Langston.

Tickets are pay-what-you-choose for all, available here.
