The VORTEX Tapas Series 2021 begins with a new work-in-progress production of Valoneecia Tolbert’s Tales of a Blerd Ballerina. Presented both as LIVE broadcasts each evening as well as with limited in-person seating opportunities at the VORTEX, this play centers the Blerd (black nerd) experience, embracing diverse communities and generating vital conversations around black identity. This unashamed art pulls concepts and style from both the Afro-Diaspora and Jazz Aesthetic while also focusing on stories of growing up as a Blerd child of the 80’s. Sun, Apr 18 at 8pm is the last day for this show! So get your tickets now!
