Wideman/Davis Dance’s Ruptured Silence: Racist Symbolism and Signs

The University of SC Dept. of Theatre and Dance presents Ruptured Silence: Racist Symbolism and Signs by Wideman/Davis Dance, December 1-4 at 8 p.m. in Drayton Hall Theatre. Conceived by Co-Artistic Directors Tanya Wideman-Davis and Thaddeus Davis, Ruptured Silence is a new media and dance performance that examines contemporary perspectives about the confederate flag, a bygone symbol, and its usage as an intimidation tool. In lieu of the recent mass murders at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Ruptured Silence provides an opportunity for discourse on racial equality and oppression within our current cultural landscape. A post-performance question and answer session will follow each performance.
