Through the mediums of spoken word, monologue and rap, “Perception-ism” is Sharla Smith’s one-woman show. It explores three characters perception of life in Brixton and was inspired by the 2011 London riots. It also raises question to the perception we each may have about class, race and gender. “Perception-ism” attempts to close the gap between these boxes of class, race and gender by having a conversation, smiling and being kind to one another. If nothing else, these barriers are already broken by one woman playing all three. Sharla has performed this play in London and is ecstatic about showing it off in New York. Photo by Caroline Webster. Recommended for: teenagers, adults, ethnic community (Caribbean). Link: other.
