Evolve is a new performance experience that explores the relationship between law enforcement and communities of color. Combining pre-recorded videos and live monologues from The New Black Fest’s Hands Up: 7 Playwrights, 7 Testaments, a show written by African American men and women about their experience with racial profiling, and Cop Out: Beyond Black, White & Blue, based on interviews with police officers, Evolve seeks to stimulate conversation in a new way and help us to bridge a seemingly intractable divide. Each performance concludes with a Q&A Session, an integral component of the Evolve experience.
NOTE: This performance uses prop firearms. They are not real guns, are not pointed at the audience and there will not be gunfire. More information is available by request. Evolve also contains mature language and themes and may not be appropriate for all audiences.
