Musical Theater Factory is thrilled to welcome you to our virtual salon hosted by MTF Maker Troy Anthony, and special guest Tonya Pinkins. During this salon we want to invite musical theater makers of excellence to present work that is dismantling oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation through powerful and joyful story in song.
During the virtual salon, we welcome artists from across the nation (and around the world) to perform their new and radical music theater work live from their homes, or to share a video of a short performance. Each artist will have about 5 minutes to share.
From Tonya Pinkins:
“My pronouns are “D” for Diva and “G” for Goddess. I have spent the past two months of 2020’s pandemic in South Korea. She found herself contemplating Luke 19:39-40, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out”
I am one of the rocks. I give voice to the voiceless. I have had the privilege to work with the greatest artists and creators of my generation. I have been celebrated and heralded, scolded and scorned. I have created in many mediums. I have worked as a teacher, actor, singer, dancer, composer, adjudicator, board member, author and now filmmaker of the debut socio-political horror film RED PILL. I am humbly blessed.”
We ask that everyone takes special care in uplifting and supporting each other. This is inclusive of only offering criticism when it is asked for and being respectful to gender identities. We seek to dismantle oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation – by participating, you agree to respect one another. In the event of unintentional harm, we support active engagement in harm reduction.
You do not have to share in order to attend. Please register to share or to participate as a supportive audience member. We can’t wait to see you there!
Please Note: “I Want to Share” tickets will close at 8pm on Wednesday, November 11th, and “I Want to Watch” tickets will close at 6pm on Friday, November 13th.
