Be Together Do Together
Jaq Victor and Rebecca Davis
20:30 (EST 13:30; PST 10:30)
Join us for an hour of BIPOC-only play! That’s right... the only whiteness that is allowed must be internalized. hahaha. Being a BIPOC (black indigenous people of color) DvT-er can be pretty damn confuzzzing to say the least, both in and out of the play space. But what might reshape and transform for us without the external presence of white players? When left to our own BIPOC devices, will we even choose to play with race? If we do, what does the play look like? What might we accomplish? Do we need to accomplish something? Let's find out! Jaq and Rebecca will also give a sneak peak into their upcoming program called Be Together Do Together—a 6-month cultural sanctuary and playful laboratory for fellow BIPOC drama therapists!
