Choreopoem

March 8 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00pm, repeating until March 9, 2019

Free

The Program in Theater presents an original choreopoem devised by three Princeton seniors and their cast that addresses the circumstances and issues of black female students at Princeton: Feyisola Soetan, who wrote the piece based on her anthropological research; Janelle Spence, who is directing; and Jessica Bailey, who is choreographing. Through seven vignettes developed in workshops, the women explore issues such as innocence, exclusion, privilege, social climbing, colorism and sexism in dating, trauma and healing, and “black girl magic.”

Free and open to the public; advance tickets are recommended. Tickets will be available soon at the Frist Campus Center Ticket Office or at tickets.princeton.edu.
