Inspired by compelling personal recollections from the Oral History Project at the Birmingham Civil Rights Museum, Separate and Equal is a provocative new theatrical experience that explores the emotional violence of segregation through the playing of a forbidden basketball game between black and white teens in the pressure cooker of 1950’s Jim Crow Alabama. To enrich this visceral experience, the movements of the “game” are told through a dynamic hybrid of basketball and modern dance, performed to an original Jazz soundtrack composed specifically for this production. Instead of focusing on major players and momentous historical turning points in the civil rights struggle, Separate and Equal follows those on the very cusp of adulthood, not yet consumed by the prejudices of their parents, as they struggle to break free from the repetitious cycle we struggle with today.
