ADF Debut
Running Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes, no intermission
Tickets: $32

Put Away the Fire, dear is a live dance-theater work mapping the journey of six BIPOC and marginalized characters taking the reins of their narrative in an evening-length piece. Jumping through portals spanning reality and cinema, Put Away the Fire, dear, uproots power and history across generations of the American landscape to rupture the leading socio-political narratives living in American cinema of the 1930s-60s. In a 75-minute performance of moving stories, the six characters traverse scenes and worlds through dance theater, storytelling, set design, and a score of reclaimed exploited Black American music.
