BAM! is an immersive, interdisciplinary theatre process. BAM! is composed of localized stories and questions about America and blackness. With street dance, music, and visual imagery, it engages the iconography and reality of the “other” in blackness in Kansas City. It is an active investigation and construction of freedom, creativity, intimacy, and individual specificity—between neighbors, cousins, and strangers. Attendees are part of the performance, seated amongst the performers, and receive a workbook/guide in which to write down reflections and answer questions about their own complicity in apathy toward human lives.
