Collective Sun: Reshape The Mo(u)rning: A Staged Reading at Beyu Caffe’s Be Connected, August 1

First mounted in 2012 at Durham’s Historic Hayti Heritage Center, Collective Sun – Reshape the Mo(u)rning is a series of vignettes which weaves more than eight years of story gathering, organizing, and programmatic work into one dynamic piece of art. The vignettes explore the impact of systemic racism, criminalization, and incarceration. Part performance, part audio installation and part action, ‘Collective Sun’ creates a space for transforming harm into collective healing and supports movement towards a world without prisons.


The original piece was directed by NYU alum and Tisch School of Arts-Performance Studies graduate, Ebony Noelle Golden and written, curated and nurtured by the cultural alchemists at Spirithouse Inc, led by Nancy “Mama Nia” Wilson. 2017 Collective Sun: Reshape the Mo(u)rning director and graduate of The College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University, Praycious Wilson breathes new life into the work.

This staged reading is the first of a series culminating in full performances scheduled throughout the Fall.

Come through, learn and enjoy.

Beyu’s Be Connected program, your community connection to the latest issues in the arts, culture, music and politics is produced by Angel Dozier with new season Be Connected host, Pierce Freelon.
