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
