About The Clothesline Muse


The Clothesline Muse promises to engage audiences with a dynamic mix of artistic disciplines from live music, dance and spoken word to video projections and interactive art. A cast of six performers and six-time Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Nnenna Freelon as "The Muse" take on the eternal chore of washing clothes, elevating the seemingly mundane task to new heights with generational wisdom, colorful imagery and original dance and song.

Much like the internet, the clothesline connects people to each another, allowing them to share stories and connect their collective histories. This is a history and legacy that turned the very wheels of our country. It includes the first US labor strike - of Atlanta washerwomen in 1881. It encompasses the deep compassion of laundress Osceola McCarty. And it reverberates from the multitude of women who pulled their families up from poverty using only their clotheslines
