D/F/A is an interactive, multi-media poetic performance. D/F/A investigates the emotions, desensitization and (in)visibility of the police and victims of police brutality through monologues, mime, media and music. Blue Man is Wolf to Black Man plays with ancient Roman Playwright Platus’ theory that man is man’s only natural predator. Developed in response to the recent murder of Trayvon Martin, D/F/A is rooted in the Pedagogy and Theater of the Oppressed and styled in Ms. Holder’s genre of Shock and Awe with a Political Aftertaste, D/F/A yearns to “Extinguish the flames of hatred with a flood of dialog- Daisaku Ikeda (Buddhist philosopher).
