Kerri is managing artistic director of Scrapmettle in Greensboro. Scrapmettle is theatrically investigating their drawn humor - BLOOD - for The Body Project.
This is a short montage filmed by Brian Gregory that features the opening monologue (written by Tomeka Collins) of our piece, Bloods.
Scrapmettle puts our finishing touches on Bloods, the performance we're writing for Storyhound's The Body Project. The poem heard in the foreground written by Tomeka Collins is the opening monologue that foretells the birth of a child, born of blood into a family of gang members. Based on a true story, Bloods looks at the subject from three angles--medical, physical and symbolic--during a "day in the life" of the expecting mother who is shot by a rival gang member.
The script for Storyhound Theatre's The Body Project is finished and we're heading into rehearsal phase.
Filmed here: Kerri Mubaarak, Ingram Bell, Tomeka Collins, Adrian Quarles, Ambria Webster, Mandy Messina (guest artist) and Angela Williams Tripp.
