J-Pride “goes to” 20% Theatre’s Mx 4 Minneapolis | & Post-Show Discussion

Created & Performed by Commarrah J. Yochanan & Directed by Marcela Michelle

We are the ancestors. In a future beyond abolition and the land taking us back, Mx our Black trans non-binary descendant would like to petition our help to become Mayor of Minneapolis. Mayor is a Spirit to be summoned through community…Will our collective ancestral strength be enough for them to win? Or will fear of the unknown and fear of self prevent Mx from winning election?
