“Artfully crafted and masterfully performed, the bull-jean stories is lyrical, honest, funny, and deeply romantic. Q-Roc has created a wonderful piece of theatre.”

-Robin Bernstein, Associate Professor of African and African American Studies and of Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality, Harvard University

the bull-jean stories is based on the idea of circular Life/the transmigration of Souls. using traditional storytelling and non-traditional verse to chronicle the course of lovve returning in the Life-times of one wo’mn-lovvn-wo’mn named bull-dog-jean/the bull-jean stories give cultural documentation and social commentary on African-American herstory and survival. events pivot from the Heart of bull-jean, but the Work is about community, past times and Spiritual binding. “my intent is to serve as griot-anthropologist much like langston hughes and his jesse b. simple stories and zora neal hurston/preserving & passing on memory/language/humor and Truth”. Though each story stands fully alone/together they herald the fluid connecting power/NOMMO (Life force) that is the Spirit of African-American people.
