#PirateRadio with Shola Cole aka Pirate Jenny & Mark Gunnery

#PirateRadio is an interdisciplinary performance using installation, movement, spoken word and experimental sound. It is the most recent approach of artist Shola Cole's work Jenny.Was.A.Pirate.Hater reflecting on her personal experience, history's pirates, their turf and working colusions with slaves and outlying communities during the Golden Age of Piracy and the Atlantic Slave Trade. Part talk show, part installation and full homage to the works inspired by artists such as Sparrow, ​Brecht, Kurt Weill, Lotte Lenya and Kathy Acker and others; #PirateRadio features Cole's time traveling alter ego Pirate Jenny and fellow collaborator and sound artist Mark Gunnery. Highlighting Baltimore's history of activists and artists such as Nina Simone and Harriet Tubman, this performance is set against a backdrop of ambient sound propelled by site specific inspiration at Baltimore's Fields Festival. #PirateRadio aims to present a sonic experience within a conversation and social commentary between local yet globally minded thinkers and art/act/ivists.
