“Performing Justice” Auditions

“Performing Justice” Auditions

Can you play the electric guitar like Sister Rosetta Tharpe? 

Can you bring poetry to life like Audre Lorde? 

Can you paint like Jean-Michel Basquist?

Can you quilt like Faith Ringold? 

Can you dance like Maria Tallchief?

Can you sculpt like Augusta Savage? 

Nickel Plate Arts & Allegion are producing Performing Justice, a paid presentation where performers embody real life people from history and showcase their artists skills to the public (Think historic cosplay!). This event will bring to life colorful art history for a positive impact. 

Not sure who you can embody? Audition! We have the Gal’s Guide Women’s History Library and our local historian helping us match actors/artists with possible historical characters.
