“The Clothesline Muse” Production Update

Grammy-nominated jazz artist Nneena Freelon, working with documentary maker Lana Garland, developed a dance performance concept to pay tribute to the past generations of black washerwomen whose labors paved the way for a better life for their families and future generations. Interested in parallels with the place of laundries among Chinese immigrants, they came from North Carolina this June to interview me in southern California.  I was flattered by their interest.

This trailer gives you a much clearer idea of their project than my brief description which does not do justice.   I am eagerly awaiting the  premiere performance of “Living Off the Line: Stories from the Clothesline Muse” is planned for the summer of 2014.
