Nia & Ness: 'run.' premiere

  • Point Green 260 Java Street Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

'run.' is an evening-length, dance-poetry story of two black, out-lesbian women in a committed relationship, who navigate the daily struggles and joys of life in NYC. Nia & Ness invite the audience to enter their world as observers, listening in on their intimate, strong, and loving conversations about and influenced by their identities. They hope those experiencing 'run.' will bring what they've learned into their own lives and interactions with others across various and intersectional backgrounds.

'run.' is Nia & Ness's first evening-length work and will be accompanied by all orignal music composed by Garrett Miller.

Doors open at 8 pm and the audience can experience the pre-show pop-up exhibit created by Nia & Ness in collaboration with Moth DustMuhammad Floyd and Emanie Antonette. This exhibit will set the tone for the entire evening, bringing you deep into the intimate and safe space of Nia & Ness, even including items from the duo/couple's home.

The performance will start at 9 pm. The show is 1 hour and 12 minutes long, with a 15 minute intermission.

$15.00 for students, aka runners

This work was created in part with a space grant from BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange with support from the New York State Council on the Arts, the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
