  'The Race 2020'  
(Music/Theatre/Dance)

What can we build together in this immense time of culture shift? And who are the leaders we need to call on to trailblaze a rapidly-changing world?

"The Race 2020," originally conceived by Michael Rohd of Sojourn Theatre, is an interactive live-streamed performance that combines spectacle and collaborative conversation to interrogate the state of our democracy. The production blends performance, call and response, question and answer, a global skype chorus, dance, and karaoke into a participatory, highly choreographed, and at times improvised exploration. In this era of increased partisanship and division, "The Race 2020" investigates how theatre can promote an active conversation about leadership and campaigns - a race to discover what binds us together and tears us apart.

"The Race 2020" is developed in collaboration with The Civility Project: a hub for inquiry, skills-sharing, and experimentation in civil dialogue and community trust building. Through both projects, we seek to inspire social repair through communication and healthy deliberation.

Drawing on social science methods for building empathy and understanding, we'll explore how storytelling and human communication function in digital environments.

We seek to better equip ourselves and our communities to make decisions, and to build consensus around polarizing topics.

"The Race 2020" will be presented across the nation in 2020 as part of a festival of performances leading up to the Presidential Election.
