NACERIMA: STORIES OF COLOR
WHAT ARE YOU?
Nacirema (American spelled backwards) takes a look at the complex world of race in 21st Century America. Loosely inspired by George C. Wolfe's The Colored Museum, and created in workshop by the cast and director, Nacirema: Stories of Color is a series of vignettes that asks us to look beyond stereotypes and easy answers to see the depth, beauty, and pain that is a result of America's diversity.
Nacirema is funny. It's painful, satirical, offensive, and real. It believes that to be color blind is to ignore the beauty of color. Nacirema is America and Americans and these are their stories.
