FADE to black 2, part 2

Guest speaker and panel who?.............That would be YOU!  Saturday, November 10, 2018, 11am-3pm, we're hosting a facilitated affinity space where engaging and interactive dialogue/conversation, with those you have shared identity with, sets the "stage" for creating connection and dismantling barriers between us.  In this dialogue event, we will continue to explore "the black identity" and its intersectionality with colorism, religion, sex, class, race, and interests associated with "white culture".

This space is intended only for community members who self-identify as Black, African-American, and African Diaspora.  So only those who self-identify with the intended audience requirement mentioned above should register for this event. For more information, visit the event page.

This original Pulitzer Prize winning play of sibling rivalry is told with African-American brothers that grapple in a turbulent
relationship interrupted with dark humor.  Their names, ironically, are Lincoln and Booth.

Each brother loves the other, but each wants to be on top.  The play explores themes of family dynamics in a compelling fashion.

Co-directed by Bobby Bermea and Jamie M. Rea. 

This show has adult content and is not recommended for children.

Confrontation Theatre’s mission is to provoke all-inclusive audiences through excellent, affordable theatre as we confront the unique experiences and perspective of the Black diaspora by focusing on and supporting works by artists of African descent.

With a slew of theatre companies in the Portland metropolitan area, it’s easy to assume there is an adequate proportion of diversity within this vibrant arts hub. Although there are dozens of companies here, only THREE were founded and/or managed by Afro-Americans, Blacks or Africans. With this reality, it’s imperative another company founded and managed by Black women and men gives rise to not only entertain, confront and enlighten audiences but also create more opportunities for Black artists to display and develop their share and share their authentic stories unapologetically.
