Separate and Equal

Updated: Jul 28, 2021

Inspired by compelling personal recollections from the Oral History Project at the Birmingham Civil Rights Museum, Separate and Equal explores the emotional violence of segregation through the playing of a forbidden basketball game between black and white teens in the pressure cooker of 1950’s Jim Crow Alabama.

Told through a dynamic hybrid of basketball and modern dance and performed to an original jazz soundtrack composed specifically for this production, Separate and Equal follows those on the very cusp of adulthood, not yet consumed by the prejudices of their parents, as they struggle to break free from the repetitious cycle of racism.

Age recommendation 15+

Please note that the places contains profanity and adult themes.
