Check All That Apply is an evening-length, movement-based performance piece featuring a cast of mixed-race artists.  Directed by Manhattan-based choreographer Sarah Esser, the work explores the nuances of mixedness, of which there is no singular experience.  Check All That Apply strives to create a communal space for acknowledging, interrogating, + celebrating mixed identity.

Check All That Apply is not a performance.
It is a story circle.
It is a study on community building.
It is not instructional.
It is a workshop for interrogating, understanding, + reinterpreting our mixed-race identities.
It is not about exclusion or comparison.
It is a reclaiming of the bits of our histories that are often erased.
It is an expression of anger, frustration, acceptance, + love.
