About the Performances
If I Die I'm a Legend, created by D.S. Kinsel and Anqwenique Wingfield, is a historical diagram of afro-futuristic existence. This physical theater work provides a look into Street Deities and their relationships to the lineage of diasporic people. Audiences will witness the creation of a #blacklivesmatter #shrine after traveling through #blackpower portals.
Teenie Time allows local artists to respond to the photography of Charles "Teenie" Harris. New works are created using the Teenie Harris Archive as inspiration. There will be an open call for artists in late October.
Third Thursday is Later, Louder, and Adults Only
