black do crack is an exploration of the mythology of the strong black woman. The mother who is not allowed to crack but is dying under the pressure of that fiction. Drugs and food. Escaping. Stuck. Moving slow. Moving too fast. We wail. In secret. Hiding our discomposure. Black bends and do crack. Playing with language, song and movement, black do crack is an exploration of the curse and the blessing of being a strong Woman.
