(Work-in-Progress), by Performance Artist Aisha Cousins, Musician Greg TateBurnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, directed by Letitia Guillory – Tackles the modern dilemma of gentrification through the lens of legendary black folklore hero, Brer Rabbit, and his birthplace, the Briar Patch.

The Opera merges music, performance art, and community engagement—the production engages adults, of all cultures, in reflecting on the life-lessons our respective Briar Patches have taught us.
