Between me and the other world is a dynamic exploration of scholar and civil rights leader W.E.B. DuBois' concept of "double consciousness". This performance installation has been created in collaboration with composer Anthony Brown, media artist David Szlasa, scenic designer Sean Riley and performing artists Jetta Martin, Raissa Simpson, Rashidi Omari and Matthew Wickett, who together have created an immersive environment that evokes the identity duality described in DuBois' seminal work.
Between me and the other world is made possible by the generous support from the Surdna Foundation, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, San Francisco Grants for the Arts Hotel Tax Fund, National Endowment for the Arts, Kenneth Rainin Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation, W.A. Gerbode Foundation, the Bayview Hunters Point Community Fund of the Tides Foundation and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts' YBCAway program.
