Description: Internationally acclaimed auteur Ping Chong and noted director and dramaturg Talvin Wilks will collaborate with University of Maryland graduate and undergraduate designers and performers to develop a theatrical presentation in response to the murder of Trayvon Martin.
This devised work will examine the roots of Black and White race relations moving back and forth in time to connect the dots between America’s troubled racial history and its on-going consequences. Ping Chong will apply his visually arresting signature style and dynamic use of media and staging to realize this timely and provocative work.
