What to Send Up When it Goes Down

November 14, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - November 16, 2019 @ 10:00 pm

$15 – $25

What to Send Up When It Goes Down is a community ritual created in response to the deaths of Black people as a result of racialized violence. As lines between characters and actors, observers and observed blur, a dizzying series of vignettes build to a climactic moment where performance and reality collide. Meant to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-blackness and acknowledge the resilience of Black people throughout history, this theatrical work uses parody, song, movement, and audience participation to create a space for catharsis, reflection, cleansing, and healing.

This production takes place at two venues: Hibernian Hall and The Ex.
