Interested in Seeing an Amazing Play about Gentrification?
On Sunday, May 20th and 4:30PM at BusBoys and Poets (5th and K) catch the amazing, poignant, hilarious, and moving play, “Renaissance in the Belly of Killer Whale!” This Off-Broadway production premiered at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, had two Off-Broadway runs at the Times Square Arts Center, and then an extended run at the National Black Theatre in Harlem!
“Renaissance in the Belly of a Killer Whale” uniquely tells the story of three young women’s love affair with Harlem from youth to young adulthood through a montage of spoken word poetry, theatre, dance, and song. It explores the conflicts in coming to terms with a gentrified Harlem. The ladies grapple with the positive aspects of gentrification, such as increased security, new businesses, and more resources, but also the negative aspects, such as displacement of residents, the higher cost of living, and a cultural loss.
