Performer Daniel Beaty
01/24/2017
5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

As part of the UVA Engineering Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Learning Series, artist Daniel Beaty presents a one-man, 40-character performance from slavery to present, including song and slam poetry. The performance is entitled “Emergency,” and is set in the present day, when a slave ship emerges in front of the Statue of Liberty, sending New York City into a whirlwind of emotion and exploration. Beaty portrays a cast of characters including a homeless man, a scientist, a Republican business executive, a street vendor and an 11-year-old boy from the projects who all respond to the unexpected phenomenon. A slam poet named Rodney is scheduled to perform in a poetry slam that evening, but is delayed by having to retrieve his schizophrenic father from the site of the emergence. While Rodney and his brother go to see about their dad, the audience is treated to the poetry slam already in progress. Through the characters’ individual responses to this surreal happening and their varied testimonies on identity and personal freedom, “Emergency” weaves a stirring commentary on what it is to be human and the longing to be free. This play is the recipient of an Obie Award for Writing & Performance as well as numerous other awards.
