DIVERSITY FELLOWS! present a celebration of holiday cheer which reflects critically on the year that has just passed. What it does mean to summon the Chrismakwanzkah spirit of “good cheer and felicitous behavior to all human kind” after a year of #lives (not) mattering, refugee crises, hyperperformative presidential debates, and Hotline Bling? How can we analyze, celebrate, excoriate the events of this year and prepare for a new future? Part year-in-review, part multicultural holiday spectacular, The 2015 Show (with an extra dose of Chrismakwanzakah cheer) is coming your way for one night only!

Ronald Kevin Lewis
Benjamin Lundberg with Lehidy Laura Frias

Aimed at blurring the lines between performance, politics, and the presentation of self in every-day life, DIVERSITY FELLOWS! use race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and more as both lenses and performed identities to produce genre-blurring pieces that refer to pop-cultural tropes, critical theory, and queer performance tactics, creating chaotic environments out of seemingly simplistic interactive structures: Green card interviews, diversity workshops, make-up appointments, karaoke. The FELLOWS: Reya Sehgal and Marc Boucai.
