After a day of casting and callbacks and some difficult decisions, we are proud to announce our chosen lead for the film Sista in the Brotherhood!
Meet Sidony O'Neal. Sidony is a writer and performance artist. She has worked in theatre as a stage manager and dramaturg and is thrilled to be a part of an experimental performance community in Portland. She recently had the pleasure of acting with a cast of phenomenal women in a staged reading of My Walk Has Never Been Average at Alberta Rose Theatre.
Here's what Sidony has to say about being selected for the role: "Sista In the Brotherhood is such powerful and necessary work. In a city where gentrification and urban development often renders people of color exposed and implicated on all sides of the argument, it is an honor to be chosen to bring honesty and truth to realities that are too often silenced in the narrative."
We are equally honored to have her and look forward to selecting and announcing additional cast as we continue in the process. More soon!
