Program Note

Justice For Some is a multi-disciplinary performance and community outreach project that highlights the history and future of protest while challenging the notion of equality and discrimination. Through community classes and an evening-length performance, Justice for Some exemplifies how the “movement” in the idea of social movement involves the physicality of the moving body. The piece focuses on what protest looks and sounds like and how to explore the current human rights movement on a kinesthetic level. Justice for Some asks the question, “What are you willing to fight for?”

The community outreach culminates in an evening length piece that abstractly reveals PROTEST as it pertains to human rights and the political landscape. Marriage laws, body rights, gay teen suicide, political extremism, exploitation of women, human trafficking, disembodied protest, and media manipulation are just a few of the issues tackled in this piece.
