WHAT TO SEND UP WHEN IT GOES DOWN where the boundaries of a traditional play intertwine with ritual, poetry, pageantry, and protest into one experience. It is a play-pageant-ritual-homegoing celebration in response to the physical and spiritual deaths of Black people as a result of racialized violence. 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.
We invite you to SHOW UP! To scream, to laugh, to cry but most importantly to heal and honor those lost to racialized violence; to bravely reimagine our world as a place where Black bodies are not just safe, but uplifted.
