“What To Send Up When It Goes Down” is a play-pageant-ritual-homegoing celebration meant to disrupt, honor, and reclaim. An attempt to honor those lost to racist violence in America, the piece uses language, song and movement as a means of reflecting in order to cleanse and uplift. The goal is cleansing/catharsis through the exercise of viewing and participating in the piece, while also making space for collective emotions following tragedy. http://www.whattosendup.com http://www.oxy.edu/oxy-arts/projects-exhibitions/visiting-artists
