Pariah is a performance series that brings together the movement-based works of 4 east-coast based artists Tsedaye Makonnen (DC) , Esther Baker-Taparga (PA) , Waqia Abdul-Kareem (MD) and Marcelline Mandeng (PA). In their performances, they will use abject gestures to collectively explore what it means to be Un-American.
