Experiences of bias
told through personal stories, movement and visual art.

Featured at Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival 2019, Jane Franklin Dance returns to Theatre on the Run with excerpts from Border.  In this movement theatre work, individuals describe barriers experienced through career, racial, gender or ethnic prejudice. People speak of real-life experiences: a woman working in a male dominated career, an HIV positive young adult, a black woman negotiating cultural assumptions, a Latino delayed by police, disability and employment, biracial marriage, same-sex parenthood, and the lengthy process of legal immigration.  Find threads of isolation residing alongside the urge for belonging, told through personal stories, movement and visual art. Set is by Scenic and Projections Designer for Theater and Opera, Jonathan Dahm Robertson.
