Rivendell Theatre hosted a fantastic talk-back tonight after the wonderful performance of Body/Courage, written by and starring Danielle Pinnock, directed by Megan Carney, running thru Feb. 27. The discussion, MEDIA AS A MESSAGE: Race & Body Image was about how pop culture frames, conditions, creates and reinforces self-perception. On stage were ( from left ): performance artist Baraka de Soleil, Los Angeles-based actress LeTeefa Holder, actor LaRoyce Hawkins ( from TV's Chicago P.D. ), Pinnock, and visual artist Kenrick Joey McFarlane.
