Short work-in-progress screening in Winston-Salem

We’ve been invited to screen a 5-minute teaser at The Ramkat in Winston-Salem on Wednesday November 29th at 7pm. This teaser opens for the Queen Bee’s set. Anna (Quilla), a member of the Queen Bees is the composer for our series and in the doc!!


Queen Bees to Gas Hill Drinking Room at Ramkat on November 29, 2023! Doors at 7 PM, show at 7:30 PM. No advance tickets, $5 suggested donation at the door.

Queen Bees is a musical collaboration between three North Carolina-based musicians: Award-winning musician and journalist, Molly McGinn; renowned electronic music producer and songwriter, Quilla; and esteemed musician and creative producer Kate Musselwhite Tobey. They use an uplifting blend of traditional acoustic instruments, modern electronic components and the folk tradition of storytelling to drive unity in social justice causes. Their first track, “Ravens and the Wrens” (Ritual Fire Records, 2021), was inspired by the personal experiences of trans author Sam Peterson. Past collaborations between Molly McGinn and Quilla include “Wild and Kind” (2016)—a musical prayer written to raise awareness about plans to build a canal in Nicaragua that would devastate the local agricultural economy in its path. Collaborations between Quilla and Kate Tobey include “Old Souls” (2020) and forthcoming tracks “Bloodlines” and “You Belong Here,” which explore ancestry and migration. #queenbees #mollymcginn #quilla #katemusselwhitetobey #gashilldrinkingroom #wsnc #supportlivemusic

s/n to collaborate with Quilla doing projection work for her new musical

We are excited to mention that s/n will construct the video projections for Ancestral, a new musical by Quilla!

ANCESTRAL is an innovative musical composed and produced by Quilla and choreographed by LeDarius Parker. It is an intergenerational story told through dialog and live dance sequences accompanied by a powerful electronic score. The narrative focuses on a group of characters who reside in modern-day Greensboro, NC. Each character encounters one of their ancestors during a dream, and undergoes a transformative process.

This project (ANCESTRAL) is being created with support from a grant from the North Carolina Arts Council and partnering arts councils, as well as artist residency award by Creative Greensboro.

ANCESTRAL will premiere on April 27-28-29-30, 2023 at the Stephen D. Hyers Theatre in the Greensboro Cultural Center.
