About the show:
 

OTHER was created from scratch, in just two and half intensive weeks of rehearsals or “Lab”, by lead artist Kelsey "Jumper" Robinson (Quantum Theater and Bricolage alum, KST Freshworks Resident) and a cast of exclusively multiracial artists (Jason “JGo3000” Gordon, Diane Ghogomu, Jalina McClarin and Brenden Peifer). 

The show aims to redefine multiracial identity through personal narratives, group myth and deconstructing learned biases. The ensemble has created an immersive experience that speaks to who they are and ask the audience to consider their perspective on race. 

The performance is immersive, has interactive elements, requires some light walking and will run about an hour and half in length with no intermission. 

folkLAB aims to be as accessible as possible so if you have questions about accommodations for any special needs, do contact: folklab.series@gmail.com. 

The performances run Dec 12-16th at Wilkinsburg’s Community Forge (1256 Franklin Avenue) and include two “pay-what-you-can” matinees (1pm on Saturday and Sunday).
