Stella Adler Studio Presents ONE DROP OF LOVE
The Stella Adler Studio of Acting's Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater will present One Drop of Love, a multimedia solo performance by Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni. Written, produced and performed by Fanshen, One Drop of Love explores the intersections of race, class and gender in search of truth, justice and love, using the ever-changing racial categories on the U.S. Census as the historical backdrop. Fanshen parallels this history with her own, and her family's, search for roots, identity and justice, and asks the audience to examine their own identities. The ultimate goal of the performance is to encourage the discussion of race and racism openly and critically, and to encourage a commitment to making the world more liberated for all.
Fanshen is returning to the Studio after a conversation about mixed identity held around the 50th anniversary of the historic Loving v. Virginia Case which struck down laws against interracial marriage in the United States. WNYC host and legal analyst Jami Floyd, who also moderated the June event, will be on hand on the opening night of One Drop of Love to moderate the post-show talk-back.
One Drop of Love will run from Wednesday, January 24, to Sunday, January 28, 2018. Tickets are $18 general admission, $5 for students; a limited number of "pay what you can" tickets will be available at the door.
