The Negro Perkins
Written and Directed by Lisa L. Langford

Set in 1898, this piece looks back on an often ignored time in African-American history during the small pox outbreak. The Negro Perkins follows three quarantined African-Americans who come face to face with what “freedom” really means. This new play seeks to reconsider historical events before they harden into an accepted narrative.

The Art of Social Graces
Choreographed by Jennifer Sandoval
Produced by Marquez Dance Project

The Art of Social Graces is an inside look on how proper etiquette has evolved over the years. How do we carry ourselves within society? Have we become cynics to the idea of chance encounters?
