Description

I Am is about the continual challenge of seeking liberation. As a group of young Detroit-based artists meet and interact, challenges arise as they realise their birth was political. These artists explore how they can survive and thrive in a place where everything seems to be set up against them? As clashes build, their journey leads them on a path of discovery and renewal. This play will illuminate and engage audiences in current sociopolitical challenges, utilising teaching artists through performance and conversation on race and privilege as a means of bridging communities.

I Am (****)
An ensemble of nine uses dance, song, and short vignettes to explore a variety of prejudices and how a person should withstand them. I was initially leery of a large cast, but was won over as they dealt with racial, sexual orientation, physical appearance, and gender issues in turn using a range of effective dramatic treatments that avoided being preachy. Among the most memorable was a small man being rejected by both a team of female cheerleaders for being a man, and a group of football players for being too small.

This was the 10th most enjoyable of the 58 shows I have seen so far this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website: www.fringefan.com.
