Award-winning Poet, Author, and now debuting Playwright, Viviann “True” Rodriguez teams up with award-winning Director Leslie “ButtaFlySoul” Taylor to bring to you “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows” – A Theatrical Play Celebrating the Dynamics of Womanhood and Life, just in time for Mother’s Day – May 9, 2015, 6:30 pm at the legendary Nuyorican Poets’ Café in Manhattan.
“In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows” is a lyrical and dynamic coming-of-age story about a teenage girl and her Mother learning the power of connection and reconciliation. Drawing strength from a present of painful memory, a bright and vibrant future, and the value of truth shared between generations of Women to prepare them for life. We learn of the glorious and visceral legacies we are a part of and the spiritual ties we have to lose loved ones.
Told through the power of verse and movement while serenaded by the haunting voice of Billie Holiday, we relearn the intimacy and empowerment of the bond shared between Mother and daughter.”
