“Love Is Blind/Hate is Deaf” is an original workshop performance piece about the destructive/healing power of words.  This show, created by Dr. Carrie Ameling’s Gender and Race as Performance class at Limestone College, features a series of vignettes and dances that explore contemporary gender and race issues in society.  The class ensemble co-wrote the script using inspiration from contemporary music, poetry, personal narratives, movies, and advertising. “Love Is Blind/Hate is Deaf” takes a candid look at the media, peer, and familial influences that shape our gendered and racial identities.  

The cast includes: Jena Alford, Gaffney, SC; Jada Bell, Buffalo, SC; Kasey Jackson, Gaffney, SC; Lauren McGaha, Jonesville, SC; Ashley McHam, Gaffney, SC; and Trey Tubb, Gaffney, SC.
