black.flesh: a litany for resistance

March 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“black.flesh: a litany for resistance” is a meditation on isolation, abjection, and Black rage. This performance piece delves into the idiosyncrasies of movement, gesture, and form to construct a narrative of black queer subjectivity under the duress of this heightened historical moment. The main question to be raised by Yasin “Ya-Ya” Fairley: “When does truth-telling become politicized?” This piece will move through various emotive states to give shape to a complex rendering of identity (race, gender, sexuality). Sound, text, costume, and props will help create an environment that gestures to what Ya-Ya calls, “an erotics of racism” (borrowed from Dr. Sharon P. Holland).

This event is free and open to the public.

CEUs are available for $10, payable by cash or check at the event.
