From Whitney White comes Semblance, a filmed theatrical experience that asks us to examine how Black women are perceived and how we interact with the Black feminine. Semblance will be presented as both a remote virtual experience and an intimate and immersive theatrical installation at NYTW.
Semblance is part of the 2021/2022 Off-Broadway season from New York Theatre Workshop.
In your everyday life, how do you encounter Black women? As the first voice you hear when you bump your favorite diva’s new song? A millisecond of eye contact with the lady who made your salad? A brief conversation with the woman watching your kids? A coworker? A politician on the screen? Perhaps you simply have to look in the mirror.
