Revolution comes to Middlebury College
Revolution, an ever-evolving anthology piece central to BRTW’s Commission series, comes to the stage at Middlebury College in April, 2016. Revolution examines the course of a violent attempt at racial freedom.
Current events and pop culture are on a collision course with a not-too-distant and eerily familiar dystopian future. Revolution reveals fractioning communities grappling with war, media, and identity. In a series of powerful vignettes, we see cops, activists, hoteps, and soldiers navigating the the dynamics of oppression, revealing lives lost and abandoned on the road to freedom.
“The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house.” – Audre Lorde.
