EVENT DATE: Jun 30, 2018

THE STORY:

Help support tenderness; a compelling and timely theatre piece. Through tenderness, we wish to reach people through their hearts and minds, by aligning individual narratives within an original  theater piece that presents humanity's capacity for both violence, and for extraordinary tenderness.

TENDERNESS AT A GLANCE

tenderness is a multi-lingual theater piece that underscores the dehumanization at the core of all violence, and contrasts it with the eternal power of human tenderness and connection.

Inspired by ensemble members’ personal experiences of human-rights abuse in Guinea, West Africa, war in the Darfur region of Sudan, and the American school-to-prison pipeline, tenderness reaches beyond conflict and racism to find pathways for human connection. The ensemble of originates from Haiti, Burundi/Rwanda, Guinea, South Sudan and the U.S. The piece blends movement and music, and text in seven languages: Arabic, Mandingo, Kirundi, Haitian Creole, French, Spanish and English. 

tenderness is co-directed by Iyawna Burnett and Julie Lichtenberg, with choreography support by Lesley Farlow, script consultation by Sabrina Hamilton and Elsa Menendez, sound design by Tony Silva and original music by Charles Neville.
