Since October 2014, The Project Room has been following Anastacia Tolbert in the making of 9 Ounces, A One-Woman Show. Starring the three female characters Alice, Luna & Saraphina, 9 Ounces uses the audience as a mirror to reflect, three narratives crochet themselves around evolving frames. After debuting the work this past July, Tolbert returns to share it once again as it continues to develop.

MORE about 9 Ounces:
9 Ounces: A One Woman Show is an unkempt, de-ribbon-ed, narrative braid dangling with cooked parts. It unofficially yogas its way through the unexpected journey of a queer woman of color's mid-life a-ha moment and extreme case of takotsubo's cardiomyopathy. Using the audience as mirror, epiphany and diary, three narratives crochet themselves around evolving frames. Meet Luna, innocent, truth-telling childlike ghost-angel, Saraphina filter-free wise counsel-spiritual matriarch and Alice an artist and writer wedged between four universal questions: Who the hell am I/not? What am I supposed to be doing? Why me? What's for Dinner? Together, the three bravely and vulnerably traverse the what-now with humor, sadness and a longing wish to have a deeper appreciation and longstanding compassion for Alice's 9-ounce heart and a goal to master downward dog.
