Combining Dance Theater and Community Organizing, BOOTSTRAPS catalyzes dialog about how we otherize our neighbors, how success is constructed, and the role white people can play in perpetuating and dismantling systems of oppression. The evening flows from performance into participatory workshop, as audience joins the cast and creative team in asking, “What do we do now?”

“Overall a provocative and engaging blend of humor, distilled physical storytelling and deep, painful questioning.”

“White fragility is about blindness and refusing to release that comfort. This performance allows us to identify and recognize our complicity. Thank you- it’s time to call systemic racism OUT!”
