January 21st, 8pm on Facebook Live
Relive the powerful performances from Glow’s 2017 production And Still I Rise featuring an inside look into the creation of this original one act, including cast interviews and never before seen rehearsal footage.
The very first production in Glow’s Raising Voices Series, 2017’s And Still I Rise was a collection of songs, dance and spoken word poetry performed by an entirely Black and African American cast. By featuring personal stories from the cast and the music that inspired them, Glow sparked dialogue and created connection between artist and audience. This production featured singers Díana Thompson-Brewer, Valisa Cooper Smith, Tevin Smith-Hall, Nicholas Hawkins, original compositions by local composer Jon Grier, dance by Vaughn D. Newman, and original poetry by spoken word artist Ashley Lumpkin.
Our first Raising Voices (Revisited) will also include interviews with The Urban League of the Upstate, an organization committed to the principle of equal opportunity for all citizens in housing, education, and employment.
While Raising Voices (Revisited) is free to watch, you will be able to donate during the Facebook livestream. Donations support both Glow Lyric Theatre and The Urban League of the Upstate.
