Story of the play: Based upon an African-American family’s dreams and experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood. It chronicles their plight as they strive to emerge from the life they currently lead to a better status. This plight encompasses dreams accomplished and dreams deferred, racial discrimination inside and outside of the African American race, the importance of love and family and growth both internal and external. This play is the backdrop to what happens next once the Younger’s move out of their current home into the play’s sequel, Clybourne Park, which just closed at GAC.

Opulence of Integrity at Joe’s Movement Emporium, March 8-9, 2015

Sunday, March 8, 2015 at 7pm

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

The Opulence of Integrity, a multimedia ensemble work inspired by the public life and inner searching of boxing’s outspoken superstar, Muhammad Ali. Inspired by Ali’s career as a boxer and life as a social activist, public martyr, and human being, choreographer Christal Brown deploys her eclectic movement vernacular to illustrate the turmoil of a life infused by divinity yet misinterpreted by humanity. By using Ali as an archetype, The Opulence of Integrity explores the homogeneous inner struggle for identity as it pertains to men of color in the United States. The Opulence of Integrity is an evening length work divided into four movements. Each movement is introduced by a chorus of narrators who use quotes from Ali to set the scene for each movement experience that follows. There is also an element of projection that lays the backdrop for the cultural and social energy of each time period. The musical score for the work was created by Zimbabwean composer Farai Malianga, whose contemporary take on the subject matter supports the choreography every step of the way. Lighting design by Nick Hung provides the audience with the feeling of watching history through the frames of old tattered photos while Aya Shibahara’s costuming infuses vibrancy and individualism into each character.

The performance is 1 hour in length with no intermission and a brief Q and A with the cast and choreographer will occur immediately following each performance.

Tickets: $25 adults, $18 students and seniors. Buy here.
