The BlackLight Project

BlackLight is a performance ethnography project. We utilize the creativity and critical insight of a multigenerational group of women to reimagine the possibilities for living in under-resourced urban environments.

Mission

BlackLight…allows us to see through darkness….

BlackLight…brings the hidden, secret, unknown
and unacknowledged to light…

BlackLight… is community-embedded,
community-accountable


BlackLight is a performance ethnography project. We utilize the creativity and critical insight of a multigenerational group of women to offer social commentary that confronts persistent structural problems. Through movement and text-based performances, workshops, classes and street theater events, we reimagine the possibilities for living in under-resourced urban environments. Honoring the political power and unique cultural productions found in every community is at the core of our arts activist work.
