Mulatto Math Indiegogo Campaign

 

Summing Up the Race Equation in America

YOU can make a difference.

This weekend, my show premiered at the Santa Monica Playhouse. It was fun, exciting and scary for me.

“Mulatto Math: Summing Up the Race Equation in America” is an edgy and moving exploration of my experience growing up mixed race in the United States.

It had people in tears as well as laughing out loud. And each performance has been followed by an intimate conversation with the audience. The feedback has been incredible.

And today, I want to tell you why this show is so important and I want to ask for your help…

I am on a Mission.

Throughout my life, I’ve been privvy to conversations that you would never normally be allowed to be part of—if you weren’t part of that ‘group’.

For example, sitting in the backyard around the barbecue with my white, Irish, Catholic family, or on the porch at dusk, with my black family from North Carolina.

This was a privilege. And it was also very painful at times.

And the real secret is that these kind of conversations take place every day.

It’s time to share these conversations—and our deeply personal stories.

It may feel uncomfortable. But my experience has been that when you shine a light on the darkness, everyone benefits…

Why.

At a time of real division in society, I’m sharing a story that is literally bringing people together.

At a time of rising economic inequality, I’m sharing a story that makes it possible for people to understand each other.

Because it’s time to change the conversation.

Will you join me and become a founder member of the tribe?

Our first step is to put on this show for six weeks in the Spring of 2018.

We need funds—for a venue, for promotion, for artistic direction, production, sound and lighting design.

Please take a tiny step right now and contribute to the campaign: [INSERT INDIEGOGO LINK]

We reached 14% of our goal in less than 48 hours! Because people like you believe in this mission.

You can get tickets to the show, voice sessions with me and even a credit as an executive producer!

Together, we really can make a difference.

Please join me. Our mission has only just begun.

‘this show will change the race conversation in the US’

What people are saying about Mulatto Math…

“Every once in a great while this town showcases a performer who pulls tears and laughter from me simultaneously. If I drank, I would have thrown back a few afterwards to feel I could make it to the end of the day, I was that raw from Monique’s story. She has the unique talent to make me feel what a mixed race person feels like and I am Cracker White guy from Van Nuys. This kind of drag it from the gut comes from Middle Passage, whip lashes, motherfucking DNA beyond it say nay. See you around campus Sister.” – Roland V.

“Monique DeBose is one of those women who has such fire and power in her, it explodes a room anytime she’s in it. She’s not afraid to speak truth no matter how uncomfortable it is. This conversation needs her.” – Christina B.

“If you are in LA, lucky you. Hottest ticket in town. Monique DeBose is a singular talent with a powerful story to tell.” – Mark S.

“What a show!! What a story! It was raw, intelligent and so well crafted while being so entertaining! Your story is a microcosm of the world’s stories of communities trying to mix together and deal with the pain points. It a story and performer ready for a larger stage! APPLAUSE!!!” – Chita O.

But I’m not a singer…I don’t know what vocal improv can do for my every day life…

You don’t need to be a singer. This is a powerful program for coaches, trainers, creatives, entrepreneurs, leaders and parents:

» Do you ever get uncomfortable around people and hold back from doing what you truly want to do?

» Do you ever get nervous speaking in public or talking to your boss or your clients?

» Do you ever limit your involvement with people because you are afraid of letting them get to know you? Do you worry that if people really knew you, they wouldn’t like you?

» Do you ever turn down business opportunities or social events because you know you would feel uncomfortable if you went?

» Do you ever have trouble stating your opinion or asking for something you want because you worry about what others will think of you?

Me too.

If you want to develop your leadership skills, your relationship skills or your communication skills then improv is a powerful secret worth experiencing.

“I took this workshop… Literally Life Changing. Found my voice. Faced so many fears. It’s like skydiving in the safety of your own home. Invaluable to my growth and my coaching practice.” – Mark J. Silverman

The following words are written by my husband, Rich.

I’m often in awe as I watch Monique navigate through life.

She’s a MANIFESTER. When she wants something happen, she makes it happen. Effortlessly.

She’s a CREATOR. From songwriting to music to trainings to business to cookies (to children)!

She’s a CREATIVE. An award-winning singer/songwriter, Monique has released two albums to great critical acclaim.

She’s a highly accomplished PERFORMER who has been on stage on three continents and in dozens of countries around the world, from Los Angeles to London, from Holland to Hawaii, from Beijing to Botswana.

She’s a world-class FACILITATOR who has run trainings in corporate settings and in high schools. She’s trained university students, top coaches and extraordinary entrepreneurs.

She’s INVESTED huge amounts of time, money and energy in her Professional Development and Personal Growth.

Monique has been MENTORED and trained by the top people in her field. From Rhiannon (one of the leading vocal improv teachers) to a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology (a leading edge program on mastery of psychology integrated with spirituality) to reaching the highest levels at The Groundlings Comedy Theater in Los Angeles (many of the top US comedians trained here – it’s intensely competitive).

She’s a MUM, who’s raising two little boys to be confident and in touch with their feelings, to be risk takers and deeply loving, to be playful and to love life.

And she’s a wife. To me! Which means she knows how to navigate uncertainty, lead powerfully and handle someone with poor communication skills!

Monique DeBose and Kaleo

The title’s dramatic right? You may be thinking, “What the fuck is a ‘mulatto’ and why is she tragic?” (google. it.)

The Tragic Mulatto Chronicles

the tragic mulatto chroniclesWelcome to my Web Series where I’ll be sharing my experiences making my latest album, which is currently titled The Tragic Mulatto Chronicles. When I started in the music industry, I wanted to name my label “The Tragic Mulatto.” I thought it was quirky, edgy and a phrase in American history that I could redefine on my own terms. When I shared this idea with my dad, he objected. “Do you really want to be associated with that?” Hmm. He made a good point. Very reasonable.

And very BORING. … Continue Reading

FAQ

Q. How long does it take?

A. Typically I devote about 12-16 hours between a couple of days. This includes writing, recording, and mixing the final product. Depending on how busy my schedule is, turn-around times could be as quick as a few days, to a few weeks. If you’re thinking about commissioning a custom song, don’t wait till the last minute. Contact me today to set it up to insure there’s enough time.

Q. What if I don’t like the song you write?

A. Though I can’t 100% guarantee you’ll like the song I write, so far I’ve had 100% positive “beyond my expectations”-type feedback! Before I write a single note or word, I will interview / ask you some questions via email. I’ll want to know about you, who you’re giving the song to, about what kind of music you and they listen to. I’ll outline what kind of song I think would work and only after having a clear vision of a direction, I’ll sit down to write. That’s why the writing usually happens quickly after I’ve gathered the back story. The more information I get, the more personal the song can be. I can also send you a quick iPhone recording before I sit down to track the whole arrangement, send you a lyric and you can have final say on anything that might not feel right to you. I wouldn’t be able to, say completely change or re-write something from the ground up, but changing a few lyrics or feel of the tune (tempo, groove) wouldn’t be a problem. I take a lot of pride in what I do and want you to be happy with the final song : ]
