NewRep Theatre presents RootsUprising “Reconsidering”

September 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

SEPTEMBER 30- OCTOBER 1
THE BLACK BOX THEATER AT THE MOSESIAN CENTER FOR THE ARTS
90-minutes including a 30-minute talk-back
Reconsidering, presented in partnership with RootsUprising and Theatre for the People, is an embodied discussion of the intersectional experience of women of color through both their spatial and temporal circumstances. The evening of sharing includes six dancing texts from RootsUprising’s repertoire, including the premier of three new works, Entangled Gaze, So Noted and Rooted We Are. RootsUprising’s Artistic Director Nailah Randall-Bellinger describes her work as “text in Motion”. She says: “Reconsidering is the process of dismantling fed beliefs, truths and distorted images of who we really are as women of color in an oppressive social construct.”
