“Each of these three women could create a fabulous show on their own together. You don’t want to miss this.” – Lisa Nelson-Haynes, The Painted Bride
“The Clothesline Muse” is a multi-discipline theater project conceived by choreographer Kariamu Welsh, and a collaboration between Nnenna Freelon, Maya Freelon Asante and Kariamu Welsh. Nnenna Freelon becomes “The Muse” in this production featuring live and recorded music, dance, spoken word, interview text, video, and interactive art. The task of washing clothes by hand is transformed into beautiful imagery, dance and song, honoring ancestors long past. This is the story of American culture, class, and the American Dream - through women’s eyes. It is a forerunner of the labor movement in its landmark protest, a forerunner to the suffragette and women’s rights movements.
It was a line to and from the families and a commentary on the state of the community. “The Clothesline Muse” is a woman sharing these stories and giving us the historical context to experience the journey of women, of our melting pot culture. These were the times, and this is the story, that shaped America.
The Clothesline Muse is a National Performance Network (NPN ) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by Painted Bride Art Center in partnership with St. Joseph’s Historic Foundation, Inc./Hayti Heritage Center and NPN. For more information: www.npnweb.org. The Clothesline Muse was made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Theater Project , with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
