Many Patterns, One Cloth is a multi-faceted performance piece that draws its inspiration across time and place to explore how the artistic and spiritual traditions of the African Diaspora can restore balance in contemporary society. Utilizing Jazz Aesthetics, as defined by Omi Osun/Joni L. Jones and others, Professors Al-Bilali and Page are building a creative team that will meld storytelling, poetry, music, and dance in honor of the Divine Feminine.

How to Prepare
We are seeking a multiracial/multicultural ensemble for this piece that will include storytelling, music, poetry, and movement.  Members of this ensemble will have skills in the following areas:  improvisation, physical theater, music, movement/dance, and singing. An understanding of devised theater and an openness to collaborative process are welcome. Please come prepared with a 1-2 minute monologue that best shows us who you are. We will provide a monologue for those who do not have one.
