SHOT: A Performance by Spectrum Dance Theater

On Wednesday, November 1st at 6 pm in Schneebeck Concert Hall, SHOT will be performed by Spectrum Dance Theater. The performance will be followed by a conversation with choreographer Donald Byrd and the dancers. The event is free and open to the public. Here is a description of the event:

Through visceral and urgent contemporary dance theater, you are invited to contemplate the alarming and continuous murder of black people by American law enforcement. With the police’s ever-expanding authority, supported by recent rulings of the Supreme Court, we ask – when will it stop?  “SHOT” is an unapologetic critique of the current American landscape, where black people find themselves in an intense cycle of fear, intimidation, aggression, and death.

This event is sponsored by the Chism Lecture in Humanities and Arts Endowment, the Matthew Norton Clapp Visiting Artist Fund, the Department of Philosophy, and the Center for Intercultural and Civic Engagement. This event is also supported by African-American Studies, Theater Arts, CWLT, and Gender Queer Studies.
