The Marsh's Monday Night Marsh presents a Sneak Preview of AfroSolo Arts Festival's renowned Black Voices Series Our Voices, Our Lives. We start off with a Sneak Preview of our Black Voices Season on Monday, July 21st as part of the Monday Night Marsh. At the Marsh Theater, we will be sharing a look at works in progress of performances that will be shown as fully developed productions last two weekends in September. Come see the works as they go from bud to blossom.

The performers will include Stephanie Anne Johnson and other performances by Lance Burton, and DJ Lamont, hosted by Thomas Robert Simpson, AfroSolo founder and artistic director.

Lance Burton will perform The Irrelevance of Being Relevant, the story of a black man who grew up and attended Central High School, in Little Rock,Arkansas. As a young man, he had a big decision to stay in the troubled South, or move seeking greener pasture. He decides to move to San Francisco. Years later, he's wondering if he made the right decision. Burton is a videographer wishing to move into the arena of live performance.

Stephanie Anne Johnson will perform Every Twenty Days: Cancer, Yoga and Me, her personal story about being diagnosed with cancer in December 2012. The title is a reference to her chemotherapy treatments, self-healing practices, and remembrances of family and friends who died from this disease. It's an intimate, funny, and uplifting story about the journey from diagnosis to treatment to physical well-being. Johnson is an AfroSolo alumna as a visual artist and lighting designer. With more than thirty-five years of experience behind the scenes, this show represents Johnson's first venture into playwriting and solo performance.

DJ Lamont will perform Grandpa Fly. It's the story of the last time he spent with his grandfather before he passed away. The story is about lessons learned and missed opportunities surrounding the visit. Ultimately, Lamont fulfills some his Grandpa's wishes, had he lived longer. Lamont is a noted disc jockey and an audio storyteller for radio. He will now take those skills and live performance to the stage.
