BRIClab: Christina Anderson MAN IN LOVE (Work in Progress)
Dec 7, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm| $10
BRIC House Artist Studio
Christina Anderson’s play Man in Love reinvents 1930s noir to create a moving depiction of identity and love, race, gender and violence.
Characters and stories weave together to paint a complex picture of a nameless, Depression-era city, with resonance for our urban environment today. From a white transwoman who throws rent parties, to a once popular Black nightclub singer who never leaves her apartment, to a sweet student passing for white to get an education, disparate realities swirl. In this concrete jungle, a series of black female bodies turn up and a pattern emerges. Who is safe? Who is in danger? And how are we all interconnected?
Using her time in BRIClab to experiment with the visual world of the play, Anderson will share a reading of the work and the results of her exploration of movement and staging.
