Flyaway Productions presents: THE RIGHT TO BE BELIEVED
Thursday, May 25, 2017 to Saturday, June 3, 2017
Flyaway Productions presents a site specific dance that asserts women’s credibility. "The Right to be Believed" will give spectacular language to a serious sociopolitical issue that has not been carefully examined since Anita Hill challenged Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991. This site specific dance explores the lack of credibility for women that is simultaneously both a legal, social and economic problem. Flyaway is collaborating with FR333 hip hop composers MADlines and XOA, rigging designer Karl Gillick, lighting designer Matthew Antaky, and photojournalist Lynn Johnson to create and present The Right to be Believed. Brought to life by Megan Lowe, Bianca Cabrera, MaryStarr Hope, Yayoi Kambara, Sonsherée Giles, and Sonya Smith, "The Right to be Believed" will use flight, inversion and a defiance of gravity to subvert limitations, to delight in the body despite unjust constraints, and to claim public space as a proving ground for women to be taken seriously in the nation’s collective imagination.
