How often do you think about your skin color? In what ways does skin color shape experience? In preparation for a new work about identity, playwright Tami Dixon (SOUTH SIDE STORIES) will engage in one on one conversations with patrons during Momentum 17 to ask candid questions and explore how people come to perceive racial identity and experience whiteness.
This is a special chance to be part of the artistic process. Interested attendees can sign up in the Gordon Lounge at City Theatre on Thursday from 6 PM — 7 PM and Friday between 5 PM — 6:30 PM.
City Theatre closes the 2016-17 season with Momentum 17: New Plays at Different Stages, bringing some of the most talented artists working today to Pittsburgh for a weekend of workshops, readings, and events. Meet the playwrights, be an active part of the page-to-stage process, and get a sneak peek at two of the 2017-18 productions at this year’s festival. Momentum 17 is free and open to the public, though reservations are suggested.
