Mothers of My Voice is a solo theatrical show dedicated to telling the one-of-a-kind life story of the artist Lady Zen, and the influence of legendary maestras such as Aretha Franklin, Sade, Billie Holiday, and Tina Turner had on the young singer.
Through provocative conversations of place, time, and gender, this solo cabaret show is punctuated with moving images, music, poetry, and real life stories of international artist, Lady Zen.
Lady Zen, who uses both gender-neutral and feminine pronouns, spent the first part of their childhood in an orphanage in Brazil and then was adopted by a missionary couple in Arkansas. This artist is has made their mark throughout the literary, intellectual, and music scenes. Mothers of My Voice gives an intimate perspective into the hardships and triumphs of a queer performing artist's journey through the past five decades.
