Inspired by the Black queer revolutionaries that are a part of the origins of the Black Lives Matter and #SayHerName movements, “Seeds” tells the story of D, a Black, queer masculine of center woman who is pulled into the movement after seeing her best friend murdered by police. She experiences the turmoil of fighting for justice in a national anti-police violence movement while battling depression, racism, and the homophobia she experiences daily. “Seeds” integrates video, dance, and theater performance to create a visually appealing production and audience experience. It is a story about triumph through despair, about fighting in impossible situations, and battling against the constant threat of marginalization and erasure.
