GASPING WHITENESS: Presented by Sandglass Theater (Sunday, March 17 at 1 pm)
GASPING WHITENESS is a play and community workshop exploring white supremacy's impact on parenting in progressive, middle class communities. It tells the stories of two families (one white and one African-American) and is performed as a staged reading by a cross-racial, cross-generational ensemble.
GASPING WHITENESS runs one hour and is followed by a one hour facilitated dialogue, designed to explore how the themes of the play speak to our lives and our stories.
The GASPING WHITENESS creative team includes playwright Will MacAdams and social justice educator/theatre maker Trenda Loftin (who co-direct and also perform in the piece); two child actors from Western MA, ages 10 and 11; and Atlanta-based visual artist Angela Davis Johnson, who created a mask and life-sized dolls for the piece.
100% of the proceeds from the reading will be donated to THE ROOT SOCIAL JUSTICE CENTER.
THE ROOT SOCIAL JUSTICE CENTER (www.therootsjc.org) is a hub for racial justice organizing and provides a physically and financially accessible space in Southern VT for social justice groups to meet. THE ROOT prioritizes People Of Color leadership and shifting resources to People of Color-led racial justice work.
We operate collectively to sustain a space that strives to be free of oppression, harm, and injustice.
PLEASE NOTE: the theater is fully wheelchair accessible. Handicap accessible spaces in our driveway are available upon request.
