One Drop Passing

Nicholas Gorham: One Drop Passing

By Nicholas Gorham

February 4 – February 5, 2011 at 10:00pm

Friday &  Saturday at 10pm

‘Nicholas Gorham: One Drop Passing’ is part homage to black revolutionary entertainers and part journey of self-discovery.  While relating the history of black music to the artist’s own experience of being mixed, this hybrid of scripted theatre and cabaret explores what it means to be “passing” in today’s culture and what it meant when the One Drop Rule was law.  ‘Nicholas Gorham: One Drop Passing’ illustrates how societal ideas of race can affect a person when they discover they aren’t exactly what they thought they were… or what they are perceived to be.
