The Hangis a ritual celebration of queerness, questions, and the eternity of a moment. Rooted in the jazz tradition and operatic form, it imagines the final hours of the life of Socrates, as he asks his friends to use every moment left to think on virtue. What transpires is a centuries-long communal consideration, full of jazz, dance, debates, and queer romps.
The Hang isthe recipient of a generous award from The Roy Cockrum Foundation. Additional support for this project has been provided by the MAP Fund; the New England Foundation for the Arts; and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
