A queer white documentary theatre-maker is investigating homophobia in Jamaica.
But what starts as a quest to awaken the world to an injustice turns into
a burning call for the artist to confront himself.
Project: Humanity is proud to announce our upcoming premiere of Small Axe, a co-production with The Theatre Centre happening this coming January. A trenchant look at injustice, identity and community, Small Axe is the latest documentary play from PH's creative director Andrew Kushnir and PH associate artist Alan Dilworth. The two artists have been in residency at The Theatre Centre since 2011.
How do we justly engage with an injustice? To whom does an injustice “belong”? Through a constellation of encounters – with activists, refugees, priests and ministers, journalists, Pride Week revelers, and many queer people of colour – an artist’s worldview gets challenged, disassembled, and remade in unexpected ways.
Stay tuned for more details about the show, the ensemble/creative team, and some exciting community partnerships.
