Citizen: An American Lyric

Citizen: An American Lyric
Fall, 2020
Written By: Claudia Rankine
Directed By: JaMeeka Holloway-Burrell

A stage adaptation of the internationally acclaimed and award-winning book of poetry/prose by Claudia Rankine about race in America. CITIZEN is a fast moving, emotionally charged, and thought-provoking piece of art that combines live theatre, music, movement, and video imagery to track the progression of micro aggressions to overt acts of racial violence by white Americans against Black American "Citizens." The play is a multimedia experience that touches on the cycles we find ourselves in and examines-through personal stories, national headlines, and natural disasters-the physical, emotional, and mental toll racism takes on the bodies of Black and Brown people. 

Book by Claudia Rankine and adapted for stage by Stephen Sachs; guest director: JaMeeka Holloway-Burrell
