Description: You’re invited to a UMD House Party, inspired by Spike Lee’s film, School Daze (1988), the musically-driven film that chronicled the ins and outs of a fictitious historically black college.
An original site-specific, dance theatre work co-conceived by School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies artists’ Meghan Bowden and Vaughn Midder, this performance challenges current UMD students to engage in topics around race, gender, class, and sexuality, as seen through the lens of contemporary African American experience.
A TDPS Second Season Production.
