#TESTIFY is an immersive, multi-sensory theater performance that instigates the line between fact and fiction, propaganda and politics, and race and class. It examines identity through the lens of the absence of connection. Sha Cage directs this devised piece in collaboration with Amoke Kubat, Jayanthi Kyle, Beverly Cottman, E.G. Bailey, Felicia Perry, Bill Cottman, Kiara Jo Jackson, Johanna Easley, Semaj Copeland, Alejandro Eduarte, Roza Brooks, Simone Williams Bernadette and Nioka Workman. Themes in this work include the politics of systemic racism, black and brown beauty, and historical cycles of trauma and healing.
Led by Marcus Young, Ananya Chatterjea, and Dr. Joi Lewis

These Radical Experiments are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and a grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation Minnesota.
