What to Send Up When It Goes Down
November 14, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until November 24, 2019
What to Send Up When It Goes Down is a community ritual created in response to the deaths of Black people as a result of racialized violence. As lines between characters and actors, observers and observed blur, a dizzying series of vignettes build to a climactic moment where performance and reality collide. Meant to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-blackness and acknowledge the resilience of Black people throughout history, this theatrical work uses parody, song, movement, and audience participation to create a space for catharsis, reflection, cleansing, and healing.
Performances will take place at Hibernian Hall (184 Dudley St Roxbury, MA 02119) on November 14 and 16, and at The Ex ( 64 Brattle St Cambridge, MA 02138) on November 20-24.
