I am singing, acting and dancing my HEART out next Sunday, 6/24/12!

For the last few months I have been working hard with members of my theater company, The Saartjie Project, to revisit, remount and revive our show Four Women.

We are so excited to present an even more expanded, “kaleidoscope of womanhood,” inspired by the classic Nina Simone song. We will be performing for ONE NIGHT ONLY as part of the 2012 DC Black Theatre Festival.
Click here to get your tickets now. We hope to sell out!

the poem of the week is a piece i wrote last week upon waking from a dream.  It feels like a poem that Nina Simone’s character Sweet Thing might write…


waking life
© 2012 by magaux delotte-bennett

I woke up this morning
with your taste on my tongue

the shrill telephone ring
abruptly ending
our dream world tango

your body
a composite of shells
forms & shapes I’ve known
and wish to know

but your taste on my tongue
is distinct

if only I could remember
