The fifth annual “In Full Color,” a production featuring women of color from around the country, will be performed at Nimbus Dance June 6-9 in the Nimbus Theater, 165 Newark Ave., Jersey City.
“In Full Color” is a performance by Thinking in Full Color, an award-winning organization that empowers women of color through education and the arts. This year’s production of “In Full Color” features stories about mother-daughter relationships, identity, and immigrants losing touch with their ancestral homes. The theatrical platform gives voice to women of color, allowing them to take ownership of their stories and create cultural dialogues.
First performed in 2015 in Jersey City under director Summer Dawn Reyes, “In Full Color” has since included work by writers from New York, New Jersey, California, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Texas and Minnesota.
“It is amazing to be working on the fifth season of ‘In Full Color’,” Reyes said. “What started as a simple dream to tell the stories of women of color in their authentic voices has grown into a beautiful sisterhood and movement. The stories we’ve put on our stage the past four years have been brilliant and enduring, and this year’s selections are no different. It’s a privilege to amplify these talented writers’ voices and show the world what life is like in our skin.”
“Having known Summer Dawn Reyes for years, it is impressive to witness her commitment and success at providing a platform for female artists of color,” Nimbus’ Artistic Director Samuel Pott said. “It is imperative that all people have opportunities to share their voices and stories; Nimbus is excited to partner with Summer and ‘In Full Color’ to provide this forum.”
Performances will take place at the Nimbus Theater on June 6-8 at 8 p.m. and June 9 at 3 p.m. For more ticket information, please visit: https://thinkinginfullcolor.brownpapertickets.com.
