Blending BBF’s flash fiction (but going flash real) and Her’tazhe’s Response Theater (RT) (reference Playback Theater) this session involves the viewers in an evocative event that focuses on injustice. Books and plays that have societal inequities as a theme will be referenced and dramatized through theater, poetry, vocals and instruments. Similar to BBF’s past flash fiction sessions, three Boston residents were asked to complete a reflective writing exercise regarding an oppressive, personal experience. Together, we will see these stories and a subset of other and possibly related “drama” that occurs in BIPOC communities, enacted. The overarching message is that the “drama” of inequity must end. This session is related to a second workshop, featuring a more specific discussion of injustice and the need for equity, occurring in person, whenever possible.
