Production DetailsPolitics: The Language of Color & All Her Children
"Politics: The Language of Color & All Her Children" is a futuristic evening-length solo theatre performance written and performed by Nkechi Emeruwa-Neuberg. Set in the year 2026, the play engages audiences in an exploration of what color and race mean in the light of past, present and future political frameworks. Despite the hardships and frequent setbacks for those seeking equality, "The Language of Color" calls for hope and optimism in the struggle, stating "It's not a Black thing, It's not a Jewish thing, it's kind of a Rainbow thing. It's more of a 'We The People' thing."Nkechi
Transdisciplinary artist Nkechi's work defies definition as she mixes the use of theatre, music, dance, film, painting, writing, or any other modality that carries the narrative through enabling her performance art to be interpreted as a real life experience. Through this transdisciplinary art form, in her words, "storytelling on steroids" she creates immersive experiences which engage audiences in empathetic and dynamic conversations and activities that impact the way attendees navigate and identify in their world. In her offerings there is usually a flag or two waved, a song sung and some chocolate (dark, milk or white) to be shared and enjoyed.
