Saturday and Sunday, August 25th and 26th, 7:30 – 10pm
2 NIGHTS! August 25 and August 26.
After playing to sold-out crowds last summer and a successful NYC premiere, BOOTSTRAPS returns to the Triangle – smarter, sharper, a direct love letter to the painful contractions that are birthing a new America.
After clawing their way to the top in pursuit of the “American Dream”, a white man and a white woman start to wonder whose backs they’re standing on. In tender silence, brutal slapstick and with soaring voices performers Kaitlin June and Raphael Sacks scour their own lived experiences to tell the story of white middle-class Americans building their lives while deconstructing their privilege. Directed by Shawn Shafner, BOOTSTRAPS was collaboratively created by the Art Monastery Project.

Dear future audiences, especially white folks,
If you are tired of the white walls in your heart keeping you separated from others, from your own humanity, from your own voice; if you are tired of the ways white supremacy has kept you separated from the Earth and Source, come join us. We invite you to grieve with us, feel with us, heal with us and sing with us as we offer this performance in the name of UNmaking and REmaking an America we can all stand for.
