The Negro Ensemble, Inc. revives "a photograph / lovers in motion," a lyrical play by Ntozake Shange, author of "for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf" (1975). Audiences are transported to an artist's flat in San Francisco during the waning years of the Black Arts Movement. A photographer named Sean David fights for his creative chops while navigating his relationships with a female dancer, a female model, a female lawyer and a male lawyer. They struggle to communicate, to create their world and to love. Although this play is not a chorepoem like "for colored girls...," Shange's transcendent language soars throughout, underscored by music and movement. Shange's sister and frequent collaborator, Ifa Bayeza, directs.

Previews February 5 & 6 at 7:00, opens February 7 at 7:00 PM, runs through February 29 on the following schedule: Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:00 PM and Sundays at 3:00 PM
