This event is planned as a stage reading of scenes from A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry, an embodied talkback session and light refreshments will be provided afterward.
The embodied talkback is planned to be an interactive dialogue between audience members and artists on the topics elevated by A Raisin in the Sun, including racism, heritage, and fair housing. Through interactive play, audience members will be empowered to reflect back their feelings about the story, now over 60 years old, and how it informs their perspective in 2022. This is intended as an opportunity for community members to come together to digest the past and present, as well as to dream up new possibilities for the future in a creative and generative format.
This event is free though we welcome donations which can be made by clicking the donate button.
There are many people with different shades of skin color, all with their own unique and often unheard stories. What would our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces or places of worship feel like if we embraced the stories of those different from ourselves?
Our story begins in Lagos, Nigeria
