The world premiere of "The Goddesses Guide: Adura for the Women of African Diaspora," written and directed by Camille Jenkins, opens on June 22, 2018 from 8:00pm-9:00pm. For three days only, see this illuminating work at The New Collective in Hollywood.
Follow the revealing journey of three Yoruba goddesses as they grapple with the responsibility of creating a guide for black women trying to survive in a world that doesn’t always allow them to thrive.
When summoned by three modern day women, Oba, Oshun, and Oya, powerful Orisha sisters, attempt to make sense of societal obstacles unique to women of African Diaspora. They discover that the task at hand is challenging, even for goddesses.
"The Goddesses Guide" was one of 10 productions, out of 125 applicants, to receive a 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival scholarship, which awards productions that will enrich audience experience and the quality of the Hollywood Fringe Festival’s artistic offerings through the presentation of unique, underrepresented themes.
The play stars Olu Agoro, Enisha Brewster, and Briana Hunt as the three Yoruba goddesses: Oba, Oya, and Oshun respectively.
It features choreography by Fernando Christopher, costume design by Olu Agoro, sound design and musical compositions by Ed Mubarek, and lighting, scenic, and prop design by Lubomir Kocka.
"The Goddesses Guide" runs from June 22nd to June 24th.
