A kaleidoscopic three-woman play of scenes, songs, and spoken-word poetry, capturing the poignancy and unexpected humor in a changing neighborhood.

Produced by the Harlem KW Project, Renaissance in the Belly of a Killer Whale is an astonishing collage, a play woven of scenes, song, memory, and spoken word poetry that captures the multifaceted issue of gentrification. Set in a changing Harlem, the journey is led by three young women who move through Harlem's evolving culture: its streets and landmarks, history and renaissance. By turns deeply moving and uproariously funny, the three performers bring to life their home neighborhood and highlight one vital idea that rings true for them all: they wish to establish a new Harlem Renaissance that will embrace the inevitable change to their neighborhood, while rejuvenating the rich culture of its past. Directed by and featuring Theatre Horizon favorite, Jaylene Clark Owens.
