Create A Space NOW was founded by Director & Choreographer, Hettie Barnhill, a Broadway performer, professor, activist and her husband Robert Gertler, filmmaker, writer, producer & director.

In this gripping performance, art imitates life. It holds a mirror to the audience and challenges the viewer through dance, film, and text to reflect upon themselves and their presence within the everyday narratives that are presented to them via social media, television, newspapers, politics, family and first-hand encounters. Witness a compelling evening covering topics such as WHITE FRAGILITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION, ANTI-BLACKNESS, ANTI-QUEERNESS & RACIAL FEAR. It forces viewers to step outside of their own bodies and into bodies that continue to be brutalized, objectified and minimized within America. The tension of everyday life and the experiences of black and brown people are brilliantly woven together in ways that have yet to be seen on stage. Theatre-goers are left to decide if they will be active in the fight for this generation's civil rights or if they will simply sit on the sidelines.

“Power, knowledge, and truth stemming from art.” - Peter Lam

“It’s not about whether or not you are black. It is about continuing the conversation until it gets so loud, so contagious, that the only possible outcome, is change.” - Lauren Schofield

“It’s honest, raw, powerful, and necessary.” - Christine Grounds

“This is where humanity lies.” - Bianca Golden
