HERE THERE BE DRAGONS
Jul 28 – Aug 28 2022
Conceived & directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton
Co-Produced by The Hansberry Project
Conceived and directed by the inimitable Valerie Curtis-Newton, and featuring the music and lyrics of some of Seattle’s most dynamic Black women recording artists, this brand-new theatrical song cycle celebrates the joys, triumphs, and tribulations of Black women. As they confront the mystery of the unknown, they construct new legends with the confidence of all that has come before them. A unique fusion of musical styles and theatrical influences, Here There Be Dragons is a bold journey into uncharted waters and new possibilities.
Among many other honors, The Hansberry Project has been the winner of the ArtsFund Mary Helen Moore Diversity Award, and Valerie Curtis-Newton has been the winner of an SDC Foundation Sir John Gielgud Fellowship and the 2019 Gregory Falls Sustained Achievement Award
