Thursday – Friday, May 16 & 17 @ 7:30pm

Sapphire is a time traveling golden goddess moving through moments that police and celebrate the Black female essence and experience. She is humanity canvassed in an evolving constellation of identity.  She is a reflection to see you and see through you…a vessel of love, ferocity, magic, grief, and audacity.

Melanie Greene, 2017 Bessie Award Recipient for Outstanding Performance with Skeleton Architecture, is a movement artist swirling on the edge of impossible, swimming in the sea of the minority. She has presented work around New York City and has received generous support from New York Live Arts, Gibney Dance, Actors Fund Summer Push Grant, and Dancing While Black Fellowship. Greene is a contributing writer for The Dance Enthusiast and Dance Magazine, co-host of the Dance Union Podcast, a 2018 Bogliasco Fellow, and 2018/20 Movement Research Artist in Residence. A southern belle turned Brooklynite, Greene holds a special place for buttery biscuits, country ham, and collard greens.
