Monét Noelle Marshall is a Durham, North Carolina-based rtist, director, producer. She serves as the Founding Artistic Director of MOJOAA Performing Arts Company, producing new works by and new opportunities for Black playwrights. Marshall explores the ways that bodies, particularly those of Black women, are used, manipulated, curated and crafted to make political statements, both with and without their consent. She does this in public spaces through performance art experiences and public art programs like Black Joy PopUp, which brings the Black community together to express joy on purpose and in more private spaces like parties and her kitchen.
