The Broken Bones + I Don’t Know Her + ICDC
January 26, 2020
One intimate stage—limitless possibilities. WIT runs wild at DC Arts Center all January long.
WIT’s latest engagement at DC Arts Centers finds our company ensembles performing alongside our featured ensembles and special guests.
The line-up changes every night and no performance is ever the same.
I Don’t Know Her
Paying homage to living legend, diva extraordinaire, and shade queen Mariah Carey, I Don’t Know Her (IDKH) is an all black female group of improvisers and story-tellers. IDKH performs grounded, lively, and real-talk scenes, inspired by a song by a black artist. We improvise from the heart and tell our truths for our aunties, the culture, and any listening skies (if you know, you know).
Cast: Nichole Hill, Precious Jenkins, Lauren Jordan, Simone Webster
A show based on an interview of a DC-based guest. We talk to someone who is a creative person in any field (the arts, science, social justice, politics, journalism, gastronomy; among others), and ask them about their stories in Washington, DC.
Guest: Jason A. Ellis is the executive and artistic director for Momentum Collective Inc., a northern Virginia based nonprofit focused on using the arts to educate, enrich and empower the lives of underserved youth. In 2018 he was recognized by the city of Alexandria as a 40-under-40 awardee and also one of the city’s Living Legends for his work as a social commentary playwright. He is one of a handful of local minority playwrights that create fully original musicals.
