Raja Feather Kelly - "Creating a New Form" (Episode 80)

"Everyone in the audience will hopefully be able to look at this Black woman and be like 'Oh, wow, is it real that I'm finding a universal connection with this person that's not me. Because let's face it most of these audiences who are coming to see We're Gonna Die are not young Black women, unfortunately, but that's also a beautiful thing."

We talk with director-choreographer Raja Feather Kelly about why he started the feath3r theory, what he finds rewarding about his work at the intersection of theatre and dance, and what he’s accomplishing with We’re Gonna Die, currently playing at Second Stage Theater.

Recommendation: Queering Post-Black Art by Derek Conrad Murray

Shout out: Lileana Blain-Cruz, Michael R. Jackson, James Jackson, Jr.
