On the Boards
Alongside mixed-race movement artists from the Seattle area, composer Leanna Keith presents Finding The InBetween, an explo-ration of the mixed-race experi-ence in America.
This is one of my first times explicitly performing my multi-racial identity. I normally live in the two worlds of performing my POC identity, or performing as a white-passing person. There is a specific part of my identity that this show allowed me to grapple with. The part that doesn’t fit in to any of the categories. The part of me that is itself a multiplicity, neither this nor that, but something in between.
