SITB is a ‘digestion play’ concerned about what is lost due to assimilations’ demands forced unto and seducing Black American and Black Immigrant communities. It considers how the generational voids can be compared to digestive tract diseases diverticulitis / diverticulosis. We consider SHIT IN THE BLOOD to be a collaborative project, a scripted show with explicitly somatic opportunities for the performers and the audiences – from stomach affirmations and vagus nerve release. This will be scripted drama, movement, and lecture on the theories our collective has ideated upon.

Co-devised by Charlene Jean, Bryanna Bradley, and Courtney Bryan Devon

Killing the Baby Seals
by Andres Osorio

At a high school drill competition, some cadets find individual purpose and promise for their futures, while others find it forced upon them a use it as a mask to hide behind. A theatrical experiment into the physicality, uniformity, and pageantry of drill and how it is used by those kids who “look like they’re going to war next period.”
