Springs Ensemble Theatre (“SET”) enters the virtual performance world with the live broadcast presentation of James Ijames’ White. Directed by local Colorado Springs powerhouse Kala Roquemore, White delves into race, gender, sexuality, and art in a hilarious, genuine way.
Gus (Dana Kjeldsen) is an artist who wants his work to be included in an upcoming exhibition put together by Jane (Bethany Hernandez). However, Jane informs him he’s “the exact opposite of what I’m looking for…No white dudes.” Gus refuses to take no for an answer and hires a Black actress, Vanessa (Desireé Myers), to present his work as a Black artist they name and create together, “Balkonaé.” Everything seems to be working, until the character of Balkonaé takes matters into her own hands….
White, directed by Kala Roquemore is SET’s premiere virtual performance of 2020 and features Desireé Myers, Dana Kjeldsen, Christopher Dong as Tanner, and Bethany Hernandez.
