A poignant and pointed look at historic and ongoing oppression, Black Like Me: An Exploration of the Word N----- demands that we confront our own privileges, prejudices, and deeply-ingrained wounds. Is it possible to redefine a blood-soaked term that was intended to dehumanize a people? How can a word so connected to racialized violence take on such subjectivity both within and outside of Black communities? Seattle-based dancer and choreographer Jade Solomon Curtis uses African, jazz, tap, ballet, musical theatre, and club dance vocabularies with emotion and razor-sharp purpose. This solo performance was built with collaborations from a team of activist-artists whose forward-thinking music, video, and lighting contributions create a layered, immersive experience.
