39 Fall Back

Kenya feels like Simba in the desert. Nina is sad because fall is taking a long time. But, then she gets over it. People lied to us, those old sayings are longer than what they taught us. We dig deeper. We talk about artists who inspired our work as we remember Ntozake Shange and the ancestors. Are you a whole artist...or a disciple of someone's technique?

We talk faith and church...and the difference between the two. We talk about strike, its not what you think. Kenya says people should mind their business. Nina says she's not a circle, but a Decahodren.

34 Game Changers

Kenya updates us about Sage's Adventures in Wonderland with Cleveland Ballet. We tesser through the looking glass on our way to Wakanda. Sternocleidomastoid. It’s a real word. Sometimes you have to pay for that information. Sometimes it is innocent. We reminisce about some things. Rehearse. Kenya got fussed at by Nina. It really is okay though.

BEYCHELLA!!! AHHHH!!! We know, everybody is talking about it...because THEY SHOULD BE! This is the blackest/HBCU/Probate/Twerkingest thing you have ever seen and it is magnificent. Yes honey, Beyonce as theatre (credit to Jenna Wortham from Still Processing for coining that phrase). We escape to Nina's car to watch it on the laptop again.

30: Digest the Good

We're recording at Karamu y'all! (and get kicked out, lol) Nina's show closed. Juuuuuuiiiiiiccccceeee. Nina's writing a book. Kenya is full.

GET IT when you can, morning, noon, night. LOL! Nina figures out her hubby loves her preggo body, that's why they got so many kids.
