Through performance, audience interaction, and community partnership, The Loving Project: E-Race reflects upon social issues including racism, sexism and gender bias and uncovers aspects of partnership that make union across cultural boundaries viable. The work weaves together a tapestry of stories that include: the case of Loving vs. Virginia, which in 1967 overturned the law against interracial marriage in Virginia (and throughout the rest of the country), and the marriage between Russian Inventor Léon Theremin and dancer with the American Negro Ballet, Lavinia Williams.

Schandelmeier & Clapp's fifth evening-length performance work, The Loving Project: E-Race celebrates distinctive partnerships and the rare gifts they bring to the world. For more information about The Loving Project: E-Race please click here.
