Presenting Town Hall by Caridad Svich and Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau

Performances by Sidney Waite, Christel Robinson, Trence Wilson-Gillem, Corey Braxton, Alex Torres, Anusua Nath, Ana Carmona-Pereda, Jasmine Scott, Cindy Chen, Deepti Talersa, Jenniviv Bansah, Lamin Johnson

Led by Beth F. Milles, Carley Robinson, Samuel Ryb, Abbey Crowley, and Performing and Media Arts Production Staff

These pieces were produced by PMA and the students of 3609 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the national racial reckoning catalyzed by the murder of George Floyd. We have distanced and we have connected. We have spoken and we have listened. Together, we present this piece not to answer a question, but to continue a dialogue. We hope you'll join us.
