Collidescope 3.0 (Wake Forest University)


About the Production

Collidescope 3.0 is the third iteration of the original premiere production Collidescope: Adventures in Pre- and Post-Racial America, adapted for Wake Forest University’s campus and community. Still centering the exploration of America’s history of violence directed at African Americans, Collidescope 3.0 differs from its predecessor by including scenes and research reflective of the local community’s history.

Following the premiere production, Collidescope (2014), Ping Chong and Company created a new touring model that transforms the original Collidescope production into a flexible performance platform that can address racial history in communities around the United States, incorporating local historical events through documentary material, devised theatrical responses to recent community events, and personal experiences of individual performers.
