Nnenna Freelon in The Clothesline Muse

UNCW Artist Residency

The Clothesline Muse

Saturday, Mar. 28, 2015 (8 pm)
UNCW Kenan Auditorium

Featuring the extraordinary voice and songwriting talents of six time Grammy-nominated vocalist Nnenna Freelon, The Clothesline Muse is a unique theatrical experience exploring the role of the clothesline in African-American culture.

Freelon's fierce, inspired music blends with the expressive dance of choreographer Kariamu Welsh and vibrant, visceral art of Maya Freelon Asante, bringing to life rich traditions that emerged out of the seemingly mundane act of washing and hanging clothes. Woven together through powerful words and dialogue, The Clothesline Muse honors the domestic worker by transforming their labors into beautiful imagery, dance and song.

Artist in Residence (Mar. 16 - 28)

As part of UNCW's Artist in Residence Program and ARTworks educational outreach initiative, Nnenna Freelon and Maya Freelon Asante will conduct a two-week residency at Williston Middle School. Featuring workshops, demonstrations and a special art exhibit, this project will commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the opening of Williston Technical High School. More details to follow.

Funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Theater Project, with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

This project was supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
