Emergentheatre:
black feminist systems change

 

Methodology Note:
Emergentheatre (ET) is a black feminist framework for systems change that has surfaced into the public sphere by way of the South Eastern Theatre Conference (SETC) (2020, 2021), Alternate ROOTS (2021, 2022), the Allied Media Conference (2022), and the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) (2022). ET posits improvisation, embodiment, and form as three practical entry points into black feminist systems shaping through relationship to self, to one another, and to the world around us.

Eli Bradley is a theatermaker, general social gadfly, and MA student in Theater & Performance Studies at Wash U in St Louis. They aim to inspire community development through intergenerational theater and the staging of provocative circumstances as a means of building a shared future.

Justice von Maur is a black feminist theatremaker, facilitator, and theorist from Nassau, Bahamas. OKCers might know Justice through her stage management work with The Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma (2018-2020) or her performance in the inaugural Theatre Crude Fringe Festival (2019). Today, Justice coordinates community outreach for the Savannah Children's Theatre and organizes cultural programming for emerging artists at Alternate ROOTS, a radical arts non-profit.
