The centerpiece of New Federal Theatre’s two-week Ntozake Shange retrospective is an updated revival of this 1981 one-act choreopoem. Like 1975’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, which first brought her to prominence, the nonlinear, kaleidoscopic work combines poetry, prose monologues, and modern dance in a lyrical, incantatory outpouring of primal emotion, exploring African-American life from the perspective of its resilient women.
