Out-FRONT! Fest. A Festival curated by Pioneers Go East Collective and presented in partnership with The LGBT Community Center.

Joey Kipp

Tracing Lorraine

Tracing Lorraine is a theatrical performance that pulls forth the common thread of personal memory and erasure in a trilogy of works by African-American playwright Lorraine Hansberry to both re-introduce and imagine her humanistic vision for a contemporary audience.

Rooted in an early pandemic video collaboration based on the play, What Use Are Flowers, Tracing Lorraine deepens Kipp’s research into the life and work of Hansberry with the addition of two more of her plays – The Drinking Gourd and Les Blancs. The theme of erasure to rebuilding prevails not only in the trilogy’s narratives but also in Hansberry and Kipp’s personal histories, separated by over sixty years, in confronting the loss of their identities within their respective creative and cultural communities.

Free events. $25 Donation is suggested (sliding scale). All are welcome!
