Individuals describe barriers experienced through career, racial, gender or ethnic prejudice. People speak of real-life experiences: a woman working in a male dominated career, an HIV positive young adult, a black woman negotiating cultural assumptions, a Latino male delayed by police, disability and employment, biracial marriage, same-sex parenthood, legal immigration. Some have met others who inspired a redirection of action or made barriers less significant.
Find threads of prejudice and isolation residing alongside the urge for belonging told through personal stories, movement and visual art. Set is by Scenic and Projections Designer for Theater and Opera, Jonathan Dahm Robertson.
This performance contains sensitive content. Dimensions of diversity can include sex, race, age, national origin, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, physical ability, sexual orientation, faith and non-faith perspectives, socio-economic class, political ideology, family status, military experience, and communication style. The individual intersection of these experiences must be valued in our community.
