TAP’d In: Power in Pride
December 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
This a free TAP’d In exclusive event for TAP members presented by About Face Theatre!
6pm Performance followed by a facilitated discussion.
About Face Theatre presents POWER IN PRIDE, an original touring show developed by the celebrated About Face Theatre Education & Outreach Program. POWER IN PRIDE speaks to personal queer experiences of the current moment, the future of queer culture, and works to unearth what has been erased around LGBTQIA+ history. It recognizes the power and impact of theatre as a tool for youth-led social change. The work is easy to reach and digest but at its core it is anti-oppression work focusing on systemic change—with youth at the helm. Written from true experiences of building chosen family, exploring LGBTQIA+ history, allyship, mental health, and finding personal joy, POWER IN PRIDE invites audiences into positive dialogue to create more equitable and inclusive school and community environments for all.
RSVP is required to attend. RSVP at http://bit.ly/2PM5mjP
