Weighted Acceptance is a 45-minute multidisciplinary performance piece that will explore the many intersectional oppressions faced by People of Color (POC). These weights are nothing more than potential sites of resistance. Weighted Acceptance will expose these potential sites and empower audiences by navigating them with artistic excellence.
