In Spite of History Part 1


Fair Park

In Spite of History is an immersive community driven storytelling experience, told from the perspective of those who live in Dallas and experienced Fair Park and the South Dallas community from the 1960s to today.

Six months of community interviews, research and collaboration weave stories into a community driven performance that will weave the audience from the Grand Place building, Nature Museum, Lagoon, Cotton Bowl, Tower Building to the front of the Hall of State.

Our character Izzy simply wants to go to the fair, her grandpa Julius questions the destruction of the Hall of Negro Life at Fair Park, and the family has an important conversation about their own place in history, present and the future.

Projection mapping on the Cotton Bowl Stadium, Tower Building, and the interior of the Nature Museum, turns these fair park buildings into a canvas for uplifting narratives.

The history of the land, community and buildings are given a voice and space for a discussion about racial healing that we hope everyone will take and continue that discussion.

 

The future is big enough (or has space enough) for all of us, as long as we acknowledge our history and don’t repeat our failures of the past. That all starts with a conversation and you, please join us for that conversation.
