Tickets On Sale For Spectrum Dance Theater's Premiere Of SHOT, 1/19-2/4
Through visceral and urgent contemporary dance theater, you are invited to contemplate the alarming and continuous murder of black people by American law enforcement. With the police's ever-expanding authority, supported by recent rulings of the Supreme Court, we ask - when will it stop? SHOT is an unapologetic critique of the current American landscape, where black people find themselves in an intense cycle of fear, intimidation, aggression, and death.
