If you didn’t know runboyrunprod is involved in everything. Last night was about the stage play #mysisterskeeper part of the #thinkcreateinspire festival with director writer Jody ‘Tru Story’ Austin assistant directors Tiffani Dean and Antoine K D Stroman. With an all woman cast covering powerful and emotional subjects, these women proved that #poetictheater is here to stay.
For Jody this was a dream come true as she took the moments of pain noticed in all women’s lives and made it a journey of sisterhood that could not be denied.
Covering matters of mental, physical and emotional abuse, self perseverance, body images, social awareness, equal rights and many more this play has answered the called that women have been waiting for and is the beginning of a journey that will go beyond the stage.
Take a bow ladies for the night is yours and the road has just begun.
As men often we are looked at as the stronger sex able to handle all obstacles and take any form of pain that comes our way. Truth be told we are no different from a woman. We want to be loved?”,understood, appreciated and heard. However in relationships we aren’t supposed to show who we really are even if ones mate says that you can be yourself completely. Funny moments happen when a man finally let’s his guard down to his mate often he is met with words like “man up,” “be a real man,” but what’s being missed is that he is and with the assumption that he can finally open up to someone he then reverts back into his shell and becomes the tortes that life only wants to acknowledge. So when you have that moment to finally heT his inner voice see his inner soul let it be ok for it will be a new beginning and the beginning of a prosperous relationship. LOVE
As we draw closer to the play, we have picked up new members and practice is going well. Talents are putting their all into not only the words but the development of characters. In this scene Krissy Bogle is going over Movement and believe me her action and presence will be one to grab attention of the audience and that’s what talent is about making words become real before your eyes..
The beauty of watching the cast is watching them develop chemistry among one another and character with themselves. For many the challenge of becoming a character invokes an understanding of knowing the frustrations and attitude of the character. For the most part, utilizing parts of ones life can be the best motivation like work and how it plays an intricate part to your everyday you can feel the frustration and pains it can cause to push forward into a role..
A brothers bond can be seen as a hit or miss but I have to be honored to say watching these two remind me of me and my brother when we were younger. As the oldest, making sure my brother was ok was an unwritten rule. When I was out I would often check up in him to see if he was ok. Yes I know he had times that would drive me crazy and often would be the tattle tale if I did something but I’d make him pay for it. When my brother moved to Atlanta with my dad we didn’t see much of each other but when he would come down I would not hesitate to buy him something like clothes for the winter and take him out to see a movie or show. My brother got to see me as a positive male image and I often felt it was my duty to make sure he understood that. From my involvement in arts to how u carried myself with women him seeing me in a positive light meant more to me then ever. As grown men my brother often talked about those times and often all I do is smile because it means one thing, I have been my brothers keeper…
