Event Details

Roger Guenveur Smith's Rodney King troubles the line between documentary, biography and theater in its recovery of King. In light of the more recent deaths of Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others, Rodney King is hauntingly urgent and invites us to ask broader questions about the aesthetics and politics of re-enactment; how art, mass and social media construct myths; what a city wants to remember; and how race often finds itself at sites of violence committed in the community's name.

The performance will be followed by a panel discussion: The Echo of Nightsticks: Recording, Reenacting and Remembering Rodney King. The panel is moderated and convened by Douglas Kearney, CalArts School of Critical Studies
