A Piece of Parade

  • The Vault 1104 Broad Street Durham, NC, 27705 United States (map)

Can performance be a place, or a map, or a place to practice, or a way to find each other? Can we use the heightened scrutiny of theater to make our choices visible? 

This piece came to be because Porter wanted to make and be in a performance that is a platform for world-making, and she wanted to hang out with this group of people every Sunday for a couple hours and have conversations about how the state of the world affects what we make. What is movement to politics, how do we express desire that is so different? There is an 8, 9, and 10 year old among the 14 performers. There are three different first languages, a poet, a house painter, a violinist, a person who works a an LED factory cutting crystals for wafers, a mathematician. It is the first time that many of us have ever been on stage.
