A great deal of American history has attempted to take the breaths away from African Americans through rape, lynching, Jim Crow laws, KKK terror, injustice and police brutality. Breathe: the Musical is the story of the Jones family, a post-slavery family of sharecroppers in the early to mid 1900’s, as they seek refuge from America’s violent racial climate. Supremacy has begot rape, false allegations, lynch threats, and eventually death to the family. With the help of five timeless midwives, the ghosts of historic lynching victims and a vibrant close-knit community, they navigate through the everyday trials of the era to reformation and anti-lynch laws. The production executes this message through original dialogue, choreo-poems, negro spirituals, and many genres of dance and music.
