dc.description.abstract“The only difference between the church and the barbershop is that you can actually tell people go to the barbershop.” In a short form narrative, through devised solo performance work, On the Corner of 12th and Richmond follows resident barbershop poet, Pierre Christopher Jackson, who grapples with racism and past childhood traumas that have crippled him and left him feeling disillusioned with higher education society, the performative nature of organized religion, and the systemic issues in infrastructural underpinnings of society. This richly theatrical mosaic reveals deeply human hopes, joys, sorrows, fears, and dreams. This piece serves as the foundation and precursor to a character study of a larger work that will include the voices and perspectives of other prominent figures of the community of Port Abrams.
