The 45th (excerpts)

“The 45th”, a docudrama conceived, created, and directed by Dazié Grego-Sykes, weaves personally conducted interviews, found text, and performances that move between the visceral and literal. Featuring and centering Black perspectives, insight, and voices. “The 45th” grapples with complexities not merely to reflect, and illuminate, but also make sense of this moment, taking us beyond survival and into thriving. The last 4 years have pushed us beyond the surreal and into a new reality. This theatrical event reveals how Black people have confronted, made sense of, and been changed by The 45th President of the United States.
