STAIN on the Boston Common

Presented by Deborah Lake Fortson of Tempest Productions
Boston Common (at the State House) 24 Beacon St. (on the Boston Common side) , Boston
free and open to all

STAIN will be performed on the Boston Common at the State House on the Free Speech Mall. Raindate is Sunday, October 21. All welcome to participate.

An “extraordinary work of performance art, “ according to David Gullette in ArtsFuse (March 25, 2018), STAIN was performed last March on the Common to honor the victims of the Parkland, Florida shootings in February and the children killed at Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

Created by Deborah Lake Fortson, Boston-based playwright and performance artist, STAIN is a silent performance unfolding red stripes on the hill with signs, drums and bells. Audiences are invited to think about these tragedies and to feel what we feel at this moment in the country’s history. STAIN brings us together with these feelings, not to politicize, but to imagine what we can become. Created in collaboration with Alli Ross, a dance theater artist and Faculty at Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
