#TrendingTuesday kicks off on Tuesday, February 11 with excerpts from “Waking Kya,” an evocative off-Broadway production produced and directed by Sonia Artwell of LaFran Entertainment. Written by Siobhan Fitzpatrick, “Waking Kya” tells the story of two sisters, living in a Liberian refugee camp, each coping with the traumas of the civil war that occurred in Sierra Leone, West Africa, in the 1990s.Guests will enjoy an evening with members of the cast, who will perform pieces from the production. The international ensemble features actors, dancers and singers hailing from Haiti, Jamaica, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, West Africa and North America. Together, the group portrays an eclectic mix of African sound and movement as well as interpretations of social injustice. The performance is followed by an intimate conversation with the artists.
