Limited Capacity seats available

The Invisibility Project is a dance and spoken word performance exploring how current residents of Wilmington, NC see and experience each other when interacting across race lines in the wake of the Coup d'etat of 1898. The performance focuses on the thoughts and feelings that arise between people when they are faced with interacting with someone of a different race: bringing to light through movement the invisible processes that occur in these relationships. This project is the culmination of a series of discussions, exploration, and reflections within the cast that have occurred over a series of months. It was first performed at the riverfront in September 2017 and has been adapted for this new venue. This version includes further exploration of the female perspective and how race impacts the sexualization of women. A Q&A/discussion will directly follow the performance.
