FORT GREENE — It's an encore decades after the curtain call.
Two members of the 1980s theater collective Rodeo Caldonia are set to reunite for the first time in more than 20 years.
Playwright, author and journalist Lisa Jones and singer and actress Alva Rogers will talk with cultural critic Greg Tate about the group, which was formed in Fort Greene during the neighborhood's arts renaissance.
Rodeo Caldonia was made up of 17 African-American women who wanted to create feminist work that focused on their "identities as black women artists."
It came at a time when Fort Greene was inhabited by many male artists like director Spike Lee, rappers Mos Def and Ol' Dirty Bastard and comedian Chris Rock.
"We are smart-a-- girls with a sense of entitlement, who avail ourselves of the goods of two continents, delight in our sexual bravura, and live womanism as pleasure, not academic mandate," Jones said of the group in a statement.
"We didn’t come together around a rigid ideology or fixed notions of black identity. We came simply to break bread and share our yearnings."
During their time together they produced two plays — both written by Jones — "Carmella & King Kong" and "Combination Skin," which premiered at Company One Theater in Connecticut.
The event, called "Remembering Rodeo Caldonia," takes place on Feb. 20 at 6 p.m. at Pillow Cafe Lounge located at 505 Myrtle Ave.
