The Bad Mama Jama Mixtape

When: Sat., March 24, 8 p.m. 2018

Rapper, poet, singer, and all-around force of nature Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson is possessed by a creative vision that generates its own energy and its own gravity, exploding lines of genre, rules of presentation, and neatly defined expectations of all manner as it unfurls. It’s fitting then that Vocab’s vision of a mixtape is not exactly what you might expect. You can see and hear for yourself this Saturday, when Vocab and a talented cast of collaborators present The Bad Mama Jama Mixtape: A Woman’s Soundtrack to Life. This unique program, “a monologue, movement, and musical event that celebrates fierce womanhood in all its complexities,” takes a theatrical and multidisciplinary deep dive into the glory of womanhood. Featuring spoken-word artists, singers, DJs, and more, including Tamara Adira, Yvette Hardin, Shantelle Thompson, Glo Armmer, Ami Nah Dece, Lisa Martinez, Beatriz Rodriguez, Naomi “SumthintoSay” Johnson and Tausha Sings, this one-time show is not to be missed.

Price: $11-$25
