Whither diversity in the Age of Trump? Mosaic Theater Explores Race & Identity in Our Political Moment
Wednesday, February 8, 2017
TIME: 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
6:00 pm Happy Hour and Buffet — 6:30 pm Program begins
EVENT TYPE: Speaker Reception
In its February world premiere of “Hooded, or Being Black for Dummies” by Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm and a new play “Ism: A tragicomedy” by Anu Yadav, the edgy Mosaic Theater provokes discussion on issues of identity, racism, sexism and lighter subjects, eg body hair. Ari Roth, Anu Yadav, and others associated with these productions will engage in discussion about the intersection of art with the political moment. WNDC members will recall the exciting program that Ari and Anu participated in 2 years ago, when Mosaic Theater was still in the embryonic stage, and won’t want to miss learning of its rapid rise to a Washington leadership in engaged theater.
Ari Roth, award winning playwright of Born Guilty, Goodnight Irene, and Andy and The Shadows, has been a DC based artistic director for 20 years.
Anu Yadav is the writer/performer of the acclaimed Capers, Capers Revisited, and Meena’s Dream.
PRICE: $25 Members; $30 Non-members (includes buffet); $10 Lecture only
