Wideman/Davis Dance presents
Ruptured Silence: Racist Symbolism and Signs
Drayton Hall Theatre
Tickets for Wideman/Davis Dance and the Student Choreography Showcase will be sold separately.
Conceived by Tanya Wideman-Davis and Thaddeus Davis, Co-Artistic Directors of Wideman/Davis Dance and Assistant Professors in the University of South Carolina Theatre and Dance Department, Ruptured Silence: Racist Signs and Symbolism is a new media and dance performance that examines contemporary perspectives about the confederate flag, a bygone symbol, and its usage as an intimidation tool. In lieu of the recent mass murders at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Ruptured Silence provides an opportunity for discourse on racial equality and oppression within our current cultural landscape. As Professors and dance makers Wideman-Davis and Davis seek to illuminate and challenge the order of discriminatory practices through movement. A post-performance question and answer session will follow each Ruptured Silence performance.
