ONE DROP OF LOVE THEMES:

Intersecting Identities: Historical Context, Personal Narrative and Identity

In this workshop participants will work to come to a common understanding of current terms and concepts regarding race, class and gender. They will also complete a short form visual narrative representing their own and others’ perceptions of their intersecting identities. Concepts discussed include: racial/class/gender identity, invisible identity, intersectionality, privilege, whiteness, white fragility and using storytelling in pursuit of social justice.

WRITING/PERFORMANCE:

Exploring the historical context of our personal narratives and creating characters for solo performance

Through a series of exercises, participants will create a dialogue between themselves and another person. These dialogues will connect the participants’ intersecting identities with historical context. After, participants will explore physical and vocal traits of the characters in their dialogues, and perform short scenes. The workshop ends with a discussion on how these exercises can be used by participants to dismantle systems of oppression.
