South Dallas Cultural Center presents Hollow Roots
Hollow Roots, by award-winning playwright Christina Anderson, questions the notion of a “post-racial” society. Diving into one woman’s quest to understand her identity, she asks if it is possible for a person to live their life unaffected by race or gender. This exquisite and transporting text tells this woman’s journey, accompanied by a vivid videoscape of her mind’s eye and live cello music recalling the sounds of her childhood.
Audiences hear a woman’s journey of self-discovery, accompanied by transcendent vocal and instrumental music and videoscapes. The community storycircle that follows the performance brings community members closer together as audience members bear witness to other people’s journeys and revelations.
