We're taking the first week off to gather our edges and regroup, but #OTVWednesdays will return to our residency at Reunion Chicago on May 8 through June. On May 8th join us for OTV Presents: The Haven, Searching for Isabelle and Catch Desire Visual EP.
The under-paid staff of a domestic violence shelter grapples with the messiness of their personal lives while trying to help their clients embark on abuse-free futures.
Searching for Isabelle
While being held captive, Isabelle discovers a mysterious ability to project herself to the outside world. When she appears to two of her friends in a desperate appeal for help, they work together to try and find her. But time is running out.
#CatchDesire Visual EP
The CATCH DESIRE VISUAL EP features three original songs written and recorded by Dr. Every Woman. Each song aims to uplift the narratives and experiences of sexually liberated black women while also promoting the value of PReP through witty remakes of all-time-favorites Computer Love by Zapp, Shoop by Salt-N-Peppa and Anaconda by Nicki Minaj.
