Dying While Black and Brown

Contemporary dance piece about restoring 14th Amendment protections

At the Dance Palace

This thought-provoking thirty minute contemporary dance performance was commissioned by Oakland’s Equal Justice Society in 2011, and created in response to their campaign to restore 14th Amendment protections for victims of discrimination.

This includes those on death row, where there is a disproportionate number of African Americans and people of color. The work is even more powerful today as California moves toward abolishing the death penalty.

This program is presented as part the exhibition FOCUS: Joanna Haigood + Wayne Campbell.

A community discussion with the artists and experts in the field follows.

Choreography and Direction by Joanna Haigood
Set Design and Fabrication by Wayne Campbell
Music by jazz composer Marcus Shelby

 

Supported by a generous grant from the West Marin Fund and presented as a way to raise awareness of how women such as nationally celebrated dander/choreographer and West Marin resident Joanna Haigood are seeking to address compelling societal issues through the arts.
