Details

Try Me is a musical production that highlights and celebrates the universality of women finding solidarity and strength by taking back their narrative. Each musical cycle portrays how females throughout history have and are currently being marginalized. In these performances, DB Project will collaborate with a variety of local artists to combine music, poetry, dance, and spoken monologue. By weaving together different artistic mediums, DB Project hopes to create an accessible platform for audiences to absorb these stories. These works remain especially pertinent today because of our social climate and critical issues such as discrimination, sexuality, race, and gender. Though American culture has continued to improve upon its racist, sexist, intolerant past, there are deep-rooted elements of all of these issues that continue to persist. In our modern world, violence and discrimination of those considered “other” continue to propagate movements such as #BlackLivesMatter, #MeToo, #EverydaySexism, and #EffYourBeautyStandards. It is becoming increasingly important for artists to present works that relate to current issues and events. To co-opt the sentiment of Anne Boleyn, “Go ahead and try us, we dare you.”
