Gatekeepers
Friday, May 5, 2017 . 7PM
Presented by the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

A gatekeeper — whether an individual or part of an institution — decides which of a certain commodity, be it raw materials or ideological goods, may enter into a social system. These decisions are made within a complex web of influences, preferences, motives and common values.

With dance-theatre as the container, Gatekeepers seeks to unearth this complex web of influences as it relates to racial identity within structural inequity. Drawing from personal testimony, group storytelling and dialogue, this performance will invite and challenge the everyday gatekeeper to imagine sustainable methods of self-reflection and transformational communal action.

Tickets: Pay what you wish, no tickets required.
