MOTheR, a new work by Kirven Douthit-Boyd, centers on a family who uses the power of dance to elevate their existence. Mother and her four sisters serve as protectors of their family, orchestrating movement of the natural world to transport them to sovereignty. They are magical agents of change who use their individual and collective powers to lead their family on a journey that is both worldly and ethereal. This production encompasses alchemy, robust original sound, vibrant imagery inspired by the cultural aesthetic of Afrofuturism, and movement vocabulary that blends cultural and contemporary dance, to tell the story of five women who will stop at nothing to protect the prosperity of their children.

Make this Mother’s Day memorable by celebrating motherhood with a special brunch and a performance of MOTheR at COCA. Brunch will feature music by DJ Lamar Harris.


1:00–2:30PM | Brunch

3:00PM | Performance of MOTheR
