Join us for an open rehearsal with Atlas Arts Lab artist Morgan Butler as they prepare for a spoken word show June 3.
The Myth of Me: a Retelling of Emergence aims to explore the origins and journey of queer femininity as told by multiple voices (poetry, song, dance). often times, femmes are taught their existence solely through trauma, and The Myth of Me seeks to reclaim that trauma and explore how those teachings have been harnessed into joy, awareness, and resilience.
