  • Details
  • The White Dress is a coming-of-age story which experiments with form, melding language, music, and movement to explore the lives of people from various gender identities, expressions and sexual orientations. Meet the Howard family: Theo is a busy attorney who has been pushed into the closet. Hazel is his dutiful, tiger mom wife, whose tactics have kept Theo from coming out. Their son, Jonathan, is bright, and promising, but becomes the boy either of his parents expect him to be. The piece centers on the relationship between a Black and Asian gender queer man and his parents. Part religious rite, part dance performance, The White Dress is a call for diversity both on stage and in our audiences. It will leave you thinking about notions of self and identity you haven’t thought about before.
