House/Full of Blackwomen is a site specific ritual based performance project that addresses issues of displacement, well being, and the continuing abuse and sex trafficking of black women and girls in Oakland. Performed as a series of episodes set in various public sites throughout Oakland over a two-year period, and culminating with a durational performance in a house in Oakland in 2018, this performance work rooted in ritual is driven by the core question, how can we, as black women find space to breathe, be well and call home?
