A multi media experience, New and Dangerous Ideas challenges ideas of criminalizing race and expatriating police while humanizing statistics by using personal stories of several members of different communities intersected with spoken word poetry, framed in music, dance and video. Featuring performances by Christopher Johnson, Sarah Leach, and Phoenyx Williams.

'New and Dangerous Ideas' was developed with a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment on the Arts.
