BlackLight is a performance ethnography project. Through movement and text-based performances, workshops, classes and street theater events, we reimagine the possibilities for living in under-resourced urban environments. Honoring the political power and unique cultural productions found in every community is at the core of our arts activist work. BlackLight began in Detroit, MI and has since expanded to Newark, NJ and Brooklyn, NY. Find out more about BlackLight’s work here.
