What to Send Up, When It Goes Down
WHAT TO SEND UP WHEN IT GOES DOWN is a play-pageant-ritual-homegoing celebration in response to the physical and spiritual deaths of Black people as a result of racialized violence. Meant to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-blackness and acknowledge the resilience of Black people throughout history, this theatrical work uses parody, song, and movement in a series of vignettes to create a space for catharsis, reflection, cleansing and healing. Boundaries blur as the audience is asked to not only observe the performance, but participate in the ritual as well. CONTENT TRANSPARENCY: WHAT TO SEND UP WHEN IT GOES DOWN contains audience participatory moments that are designed to be fully accessible, discussions and depictions of racism and racialized violence, and profanity.
