Spoken Word Artist Rai Renea Debuts One Woman Play at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center

Artist Rai Renea explores the things parents say to their children and the resulting adverse psychological affects in this thought-provoking one-woman play.
 
Oct. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Spoken word artist Rai Renea will deliver her one-woman play inspired by her published poem of the same title. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcQUikxFRSc&feature=plcp Sticks and Stones: Fairy Tales and Other Lies as Told to a Child . The play will have a limited run at the African Heritage  Cultural Arts Center(6161 NW 22nd  Ave, Miami, Fl 33142), November 2-4. The opening show is $7.00. Saturday and Sunday’s show are $10.00

The play uses a combination of poetry, monologue and dance to explore the social consequences of common phrases parents tell their children – such as “sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

In segments like “Children Should be Seen and Not Heard” and “Go to School and Work Hard”, Rai tells revealing stories of intolerance, judgment and truth; heartache and relevance through characterization of people who were told the sayings as children and are adversely affected by their ramifications as adults.

Rai wrote Sticks and Stones as a poem after a disagreement with someone who was intentionally using words to hurt her.

“I knew the words didn’t describe me, but I found myself still thinking about them weeks later,” she said. “It made me think about all the things I was told as a child that I had to erase, laugh off, or otherwise get out of my psyche because they were affecting me psychologically.”

Tickets can be purchasedwww.sticksandstones.nevagrowupmedia.com.

Sticks and Stones video is available on YouTube; the spoken word single is available for purchase on iTunes and cdbaby.com.

Sticks and Stones: Fairy Tales and Other Lies as Told to a Child is directed by Albrika Sesheta Gordon, owner of Urban Eye TV. Follow Renea on Twitter @RaiRenea. For more information visit: www.nevergrowupmedia.com.
