Come experience the choreopoem, Colored Lives! I was so impressed when I saw this performance in Atlanta GA this year. Dada Ra has written a complex, funny, serious, thought-provoking, and ultimately uplifting play, with multifaceted characters, subject matters, and “plot”. It was a joy to be in the room, absorbing its wisdom while bringing to mind lots of questions to contemplate and ask at the audience discussions at the end. Well-done!
