Description BAM and Playwrights Horizons present the Movement Theatre Company production of What to Send Up When It Goes Down. Aleshea Harris's acclaimed, groundbreaking work is a play, a ritual, and a homegoing celebration that bears witness to the physical and spiritual deaths of Black people as a result of racist violence. Setting out to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-Blackness and acknowledge the inherent value of Black people throughout history, this theatrical work blurs the boundaries between actors and audiences, offering a space for catharsis, discussion, reflection, and healing. Specifically reimagined for the expanse of Brooklyn Botanic Garden, this co-production was also staged at Playwrights Horizons.
