The Fall Developmental Stage, To Wake the Air: A Festival Honoring BIPOC Life, is a community-created performance event that features the beautiful, joyful, and brilliant voices of the BIPOC community. From dance-poetry pieces to musical performances, the work featured in To Wake the Air explores themes of rebirth, transformation, resistance, and growth as well as environmental racism and decolonial praxis. Each performance invokes the rich legacy of art as a source of reclamation, celebration, and knowledge. Recalling Dr. Christina Sharpe’s In the Wake (2016), the performance centers on the powerful reverberation of BIPOC voices.
