So its been like forever since we posted anything. Mainly because the 5th Woman has been undergoing some serious changes. Relaunching and revamping our look, our focus, and our style. However, none of that matters anymore because we are back and you will see a major difference in our presence online, in the community and around the world. If you haven't already, make sure you subscribe to T5W TV, the Youtube channel for all things 5th Woman. You will be able to see exclusive footage of the cast of the 5th Woman 2017. So without further ado, I would like to introduce you to the cast.
New to the 5th Woman, Summer Awad promises to open our eyes to so many different views of sexuality, womanhood, and empowerment. Summer is an amazing poet, playwright, performer, activist and more. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat!
Returning from the cast of 2016, Daje Morris is an amazing voice that is developing and expanding as a musician, singer, songwriter, and poet. Her poetry will provide you with a new vision and expose you to new ideas never before considered. Daje is technology guru so you can find her on all social media, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and more. Just reach out and let her know that you are excited about her being a part of the cast.
Also returning from the 2016 cast, Jasmine "BabyJ" Newton returns with her candid personality and point of view that always keeps the audience wanting more truth. Baby J hosts the poetry slams that the 5th Woman presents and can move from behind the camera to being a model with ease. She is an entrepreneur, a mother, a wife, a radio hostess, and all around superwoman. You can find BabyJ on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and her website http://www.jwayphoto.com
The last time that I appeared in a 5th Woman stage show, I was on stage with 3 amazing poets that helped me be a better person and a better friend. Two of those ladies are returning to the stage after participating in 2016 as artists in other capacities, Olivia "Origins" Riggins and Desiree "Dezigner" Seay are returning as part of the poet cast. Olivia is an amazing teacher and dancer that found words at a rough time in life and has used her artistic connection to the world to make her one of the strongest female poets of the Southern Region. Desiree is a drummer, singer, teacher, and so much more that has participated as a member of the slam team and allowed her life and struggles to be revealved candidly through her poetry. So rounding out the cast we have the experience from writers that will reveal the power of women and spirituality through their words and ability to share so openly. I connecet with Olivia and Desiree through Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. Don't hesitate to reach out and show them love!
So it goes without saying that this will be the best 5th Woman Stage Show ever. These poets are amazing and you don't wanna miss their hearts laid out on the stage to empower, educate, and motivate women from all walks of life. I love the diversity of this cast from so many different cultures. Don't miss it! The 5th Woman 2017 is going to blow you away.
