DIGITAL: Living Gallery: Melanie Greene

Oct. 9, 7:00 pm7:30 pm



Sapphire Chronicles

Sapphire Chronicles are a series of dance-inspired short stories pushing visceral, super-sonic modalities into literary fantasies. It shares the journey of Sapphire, a time traveling golden goddess moving through non-linear moments and memories. Told through an Afro-futuristic lens, these stories display humanity canvassed in an evolving constellation of Black feminine identity. It pulsates through the objectified, the dehumanized, the powerful, and the magical. Sapphire is a reflection to see you and see through you…a vessel of celestial intimacy, love, ferocity, grief, and audacity.
