AFTER/LIFE: A Detroit '67 Performance Project

Date/Time: Friday, Apr 28 - Saturday, Apr 29 | 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: RCAH Theatre, Snyder-Phillips Room C20 (Terrace Level)

Department: RCAH; Knight Foundation

Description: AFTER/LIFE is a living history play to be devised by Detroit residents and undergraduates at Michigan State University to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit rebellion. The original performance, conceived by Dr. Lisa Biggs (RCAH), braids together oral histories, theatre, poetry, and dance to challenge popular misconceptions about why 12th Street residents rose up to burn their city down. Audiences will learn what really motivated the unrest, and about the particular determination of Detroit’s women and girls’ to rebuild their city and their lives afterwards. Performance are free and open to the public. We will be doing a showing of "AFTER/LIFE" at the end of April: Friday, April 28 at 7:30 PM Saturday, April 29 at 2:00 PM
