What Lies Within: Dancing with Race and Identity

A collaboration between DanceLink and Basement Poetry

Charles A. Brown IceHouse

56 River St, Bethlehem, PA 18018

Friday & Saturday, February 10-11 @ 8pm

Sarah Carlson and Chloe Cole-Wilson, the Artistic Directors of DanceLink and Basement Poetry respectively, team up to create an original performance that unpacks the complex issues of racial identity and injustice.

In an age of increasing societal division, “What Lies Within” seeks to explore identity, examine oppression and initiate conversations that lead towards racial understanding and healing.  The show will involve a mix of improvisational movement and poetry that arises from creatively unpacking the question of race and racial injustice from within a mixed race community.

Live musicians Moe Jerant and Vernon Mobley will accompany the program with original music that pumps and drives every bit as much as the performers.

Each performance of “What Lies Within” will be followed by a talk-back with the audience to discuss and reflect upon the major themes of the show.

Performers include: Kara Bender, Reinys Beriguette, Anita Bondi, Sarah Carlson, Chloe Cole-Wilson, Noelle Cybulski, Rachel Halkias, Deirdre Johnson, Chiedu Mbonu, William Tucker, Julie Haneline Wright

**This show is most appropriate for kids age 10 and older.**

“What Lies Within” is also a part of The Ice House Tonight series.
