Performing Blackness Series: Quiet Frenzy

Written and performed by Stacey Karen Robinson

Quiet Frenzy is a solo show about the explosion, dispersion and reintegration of a life devastated by loss.  Still reeling from the sudden death of her twin sister, LaShonda wanders into a crack of time where strangers, spirits, memory and magic collide.  She descends into her depths and out of her boundaries.  She rises from trauma and recollects her Self.
