15 Apr Stacks of Obits: A Choreopoem
Stephanie Batiste (English, UCSB)
Thursday, April 15 / 7:30 PM
Stephanie L. Batiste’s one-woman show is a rhythmic perfomative contemplation of the street murders of young people of color in Los Angeles. Batiste processes the obituaries, contained in a young woman’s scrapbook, of young black people killed with guns. The show acts as an intellectual and emotional intervention in a flood of unchecked violence. Directed by Brian Granger, graduate student in the Department of Theater and Dance. Krump performances by UCSB students.
Sponsored by the Center for Black Studies Research, Dept. of Black Studies, The Chicano Studies Institute, the Hemispheric Souths Research Initiative, the IHC’s Visual Media and Performing Arts Grant, and the Office of Equal Opportunity & Sexual Harassment/Title IX Compliance.
