I’m not gonna spend my life being a color
See, it’s not about races / Just places / Faces / Where your blood comes from / Is where your space is / I’ve seen the bright get duller / I’m not gonna spend my life being a color (Michael Jackson „Black or White)
PLAYBLACK is a fast-paced musical montage investigating the role of black entertainers in the white-dominated entertainment industry.
The piece takes us deep into the memories and projections on those Afro-American and black-European cultural entertainment productions that we grew up to love. PLAYBLACK is a bittersweet farewell to white universalism and abstraction and invites you to dwell to the often uncomfortable yet captivating debates around issues of identity politics, race and representation.
Sit back – it’s show time baby.
