DESCRIPTION

Mirrors In Every Corner

Thu, Feb 25 - Sun, Mar 21 | 8pm - 10pm
This genre breaking and strikingly original theatre work chronicles an Oakland-based African American family alternately in the present and in 1988 after the mother gives birth to a Caucasian baby. Examining how race is lived in and through the body, this world premiere play by Chinaka Hodge attempts to unearth the reality and the fictive construction of race - what makes someone black, what is blackness, what is family, and what is lineage- as a family grapples with the issues of race and identity in contemporary America. The play is directed by performance innovator and the Living Word Project's Artistic Director Marc Bamuthi Joseph and features Daveed Diggs, Margo Hall, Dwight Huntsman and Traci Tolmaire, with a score by composer and trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire with DJ mixes by DJ TreatUNice, and a dual visual art installation and scenic design by artist Evan Bissell, with additional photography by Joan Osato.
