Outrage - in collaboration with Whitney Bradshaw's "Outcry"
Time & Location
About the Event
Whitney Bradshaw’s Outcry empowers women to speak out against gender discrimination as well as sexaul harassment or assault by giving them a voice and a chance to discover their scream. This, and the fact that Bradshaw started the Outcry project on the day of the Women’s March in 2018, inspired us at 5th Wave Collective to speak up, too, and invite Bradshaw to collaborate with us. After a sold-out performance in 2018, 5th Wave is honored to rejoin Whitney Bradshaw for Outrage: an immersive performance art experience that pairs Bradshaw’s intensely evocative portraits with live performances of musical works, seeking to realize each woman’s outrage in musical form. This powerful performance will coincide with the 2020 Women’s March, the second anniversary of the beginning of Bradshaw's Outcry project.
$10 general / $5 students and seniors
Bradshaw writes, “Through [Outcry], I provide women space where they can practice speaking up and out for themselves. I also provide a space for them to be heard, supported, encouraged, and celebrated.” Outrage gives the musicians of 5th Wave Collective the chance to raise our voices and the voices of the womxn whose music we perform in solidarity with Bradshaw and her subjects. We hope Outrage will encourage the audience to fight gender discrimination and stand in support of all womxn!
As part of the day's events, Whitney Bradshaw will lead one of her so-called scream sessions, during which she will make portraits of individual participants as part of her Outcry series. Bradshaw initiated this social practice project the night of the Women’s March in 2018. Since then, she has photographed over 350 women in an effort to provide them with a safe space in which they can practice speaking up and out for themselves while taking up space, being heard, supported, and encouraged by a strong community of women. Registration is limited to 20 participants! Click here for more info.
