This work articulates the African American influence in Paris through literature, music, and dance. From Josephine Baker to James Baldwin, Rhapsody in Black explores complex relationships, heartbreak, the joy of discovery, and thriving art in an environment of acceptance.
Our sensory-friendly programming presents performances for families of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities, autism, sensory processing disorder, or other conditions. Performers modify shows to ensure there are no startling noises or visually over-stimulating components. Our team keeps sound levels lower than normal and keeps the lights in the audience higher than normal, ensuring audience members can see each other. Audience members are free to come and go if need be (there is always a "safe room" available) and are asked to wave hands rather than clapping.
