WHAT TO SEND UP WHEN IT GOES DOWN (WTSU) is a play-pageant-ritual-homegoing celebration in response to the physical and spiritual deaths of Black people as a result of racialized violence. Meant to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-blackness and acknowledge the resilience of Black people throughout history, this theatrical work uses parody, song, and movement in a series of vignettes to create a space for catharsis, reflection, cleansing and healing. Boundaries blur as the audience is asked to not only observe the performance, but participate in the ritual as well. The production will “move” throughout DC, beginning with the venues operating at the intersection of black social and cultural life, , before landing at Woolly in the fall of 2019.

“WHAT TO SEND UP WHEN IT GOES DOWN is an impactful work specifically created in response to the
deaths of black people. It unapologetically pries open a space for people of color in the theater with a
community ritual that is by, for, and about black people.”

– Maria Manuela Goyanes, Artistic Director

How do you know when you’re using Instagram Stories like a professional? The short answer is: you’ll see it in your analytics.

For the long answer, read on.

But first: why develop an Instagram Stories strategy at all? Well, it’s the statistics. About half of Instagram’s monthly users are using Stories. That’s 500 million people posting 1 billion Stories every day. And about 62% of those people say they’ve become more interested in a brand or product after seeing it in their Stories.

For their part, brands have responded to the channel’s popularity by posting an average of 2.5 Instagram Stories a week. Also, 4 million brands are advertisers on Stories, as of January 2020. And given the state of the world, it’s very possible those numbers will go up in 2020.

Whether you’re just getting started or looking to master the latest subtleties, we’ve got the complete rundown on best practices for this format.

How to use Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories—a camera-first fullscreen visual format that disappears after 24 hours, modelled after Snapchat—doesn’t show up in the Instagram news feed. This means that users can post easily and rapidly to their followers without worrying about overloading them.

Also, compared to the polished reputation of the Instagram aesthetic, the vibe is definitely a little more rough around the edges. This is good news for novices: diving in doesn’t require hiring a videographer. Even billion-dollar companies are posting iPhone videos of office dogs.

Here are some quick tutorials to help you dip your toes in.
