Description

The Englert Theatre presents Dis/Unity: A Service, a new performance-based installation that will premiere on Saturday, June 18 at 8 p.m. at the Deadwood Tavern, Second Floor.

Co-commissioned by The Englert Theatre, Dis/Unity is an in-the-works performance created and performed by an interdisciplinary team of artists united to confront racism through art. Featured collaborators are Esther Baker-Tarpaga (Philadelphia), Duane Lee Holland (Philadelphia/Boston), Raquel Monroe (Chicago), Heidi Wiren Bartlett (Iowa City) and Barber (Detroit). The project is focused on race and abolitionism through the lens of pop culture, queer aesthetics, dance and visual art. Performances address trauma, liberation, and transcendence through sculptural installations and audience interaction.

The finalized performance’s world premiere will be staged at the Englert in Fall 2017.
