SEATTLE PREMIERE
Sound Theatre is proud to partner again with The Hansberry Project.
Adapted for the stage by Stephen Sachs
Co-Production with The Hansberry Project
Directed by Jay O'Leary
A searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America, fusing prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news and the visual image. Snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, "This is how you are a citizen."
