Threads Dance Project presents “In the Margins’

The Karen L. Charles Threads Dance Project invites you to its fall season performance, In the Margins. This performance features Charles’ exploration of those who often live “in the margins of society” – an examination of implicit bias as experienced by deaf/hard of hearing communities, and women in America. Threads will premiere a new work, To Hear like Me, which seeks to bridge the gap between the deaf/hard of hearing community and the hearing community; creating an experience with dance that incorporates American Sign Language, music visualization, and silence within the piece. Deaf Dance Artist Canae Weiss and ASL Interpreter Terryann Nash will join the company. Threads will also perform Femthology - a compilation of repertory works examining the experience of being female.

Mixed Blood Theatre presents “IS GOD IS”

By Aleshea Harris, directed by Nataki Garrett
September 21 – October 14, 2018
All performances at 7:30 p.m., except Sundays at 2 p.m.
Winner of the 2018 Obie Award for playwright, director, and lead actors, IS GOD IS is an epic woman’s revenge play that takes its cues from the Spaghetti Western, hip hop, Afropunk, the ancient, modern, and the tragic. African American twin sisters journey from the Dirty South to California in blood-soaked travels. It’s both a satire and an earnest exploration of what it means to claim justice and survive violence. Funny, triumphant, and surprising, Is God Is asks us to consider the roots, futility, and consequences of cyclical violence. Mixed Blood’s production features Obie and Ivey Award winning actress, Dame-Jasmine Hughes. Mixed Blood aspires to be the destination for people with disabilities.
