A one-to-one performance that was inspired by my discovery of privilege and the conversations that I went on to have about it. I have had conversations where people have been comfortable and not so comfortable. I wanted to make a safe space where people can feel comfortable when talking about these topics, in hopes that they will continue to have these types of conversations with others.
During my time with a participant, I will ask a few questions, which will then lead to them picking a card. There will be six cards which are race, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability and religion.
You See... is currently available for touring.
This one-to-one takes place in a durational context. 6 hours max, 30 minutes - 1 hour for each participant, 2-3 days. The work is best in non-theatrical and small intimate spaces. It could also take place via Skype or Zoom.
If you would like to do You See..., or have any questions, please email me:
