Virginia Stage Company to Launch 'The Line: Art For Social Change'

In partnership with Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities (http://www.inclusiveva.org/), a state-wide organization, Virginia Stage Company's Department of Education & Community Engagement will present "The Line: Art for Social Change" at Slover Public Library in downtown Norfolk on August 21, 2016 at 3PM.

The Line is the first interactive, forum workshop in the department's Art For Social Change Series. It promises artistic immersion, using scenes from James Baldwin's epic 1964 play, Blues for Mister Charlie, as well as modern dance, spoken word, digital art, and open-forum, discussion-based activities.

This workshop will provide our community with a vocabulary for deconstructing racial boundaries. By empowering community members to investigate and deconstruct racially divided areas, The Line will inspire the creation of democratic and equitable spaces in southeastern Virginia.

The event will also feature the work and historical input of Cultural Geographer and Christopher Newport University professor, Johnny Finn (http://arcg.is/1XXWxij), and choreography by Ann Mazzocca (http://www.annmazzocca.com/).

Virginia Stage Company is southeastern Virginia's leading theater destination, serving an audience of over 70,000 annually both at the Wells Theatre and throughout the community. VSC's mission is to "enrich, educate, and entertain the region by creating and producing theatrical art of the highest quality."
