Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992, to be presented
Saturday, March 26, 2011, at 7pm
The School of Education, Office of Multicultural Initiatives, Department of Theatre and Drama, and Arts in Education Club at Indiana University will present Anna Deveare Smith's play, Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992, in the School of Education Atrium. Twilight, Los Angeles, 1992 is a groundbreaking piece of 'documentary theatre' that explores the consequences of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, sparked in part by the acquittal of police officers charged with the beating of Rodney King. With its immensely diverse cast of characters, drawn from interviews with real people who experienced the riots, the play presents a balanced, 360-degree look at racial tension in the United States. The New York Times called it "an expression of the eternal search for order in an anarchic world" when the play made its debut, and following nearly unanimous critical praise, the play was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.
Admission to Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 is free, although donations to the IU Arts in Education Club will be accepted.
