Searching for the Answers

“Has society moved beyond the centuries-long struggle for liberation to embrace a new era of promised equality and inclusion?” Trebien Pollard poses this question and others in Seeing the Unspeakable, a solo dance concert that examines issues of race, gender and sexual identity. Interweaving music, images and spoken word with contemporary dance, Pollard gets out from under political correctness to explore the relationship between popular culture and the individual. Nonlinear narratives reimagine conventional storytelling techniques and hold up a mirror to outdated stereotypes, beliefs and practices.
