Press Release: The Drama Group is pleased to host Kaleid Theatre’s original production, SCAPE-ING.
We see hate all around. Hatred of seasons, colors, bodies, foods, accents, siblings, religions – everything in between and beyond. We watch as our neighbors eject lyrics, partnerships, strangers, dance moves, and children from their lives, communities, and country. We carry it too – in our veins and breath and fears and dismay. We find ourselves the recipients of hate one moment and then enacting it on others in our turn.
Sometimes, hate even wins elections.
SCAPE-ING is an exploration of hate in space and in the body. Told through dance, plot-lines, poetry, and news articles, SCAPE-ING is a theatrical investigation of violent human emotions, a personal reflection on the first months of a new administration, and a ritual of compassion.
Together, we ask, “what does it mean to love in a world that does not want to love you back?”
Performances are Thursday and Friday evenings, April 27 and 28 at 8:00, and Saturday afternoon, April 29 at 2:00, in Pilling Hall at the First United Methodist Church of Germantown, 6001 Germantown Avenue. Tickets may be purchased at kaleidtheatre.org or at the door.
