    A Street Corner Pierrot

    A performance piece by Terrell Robinson portraying a once-successful and accomplished dancer who wanders the streets of New York missing the years of a life once lived, speaking of his past, telling of his dancing. Thematically, it focuses on the artist's role in society, race in the identity of the artist, and the similarities among all people, including the homeless. It aims to show how the artist lives always on the edge of homelessness, whether emotionally or in actual reality. Sheila Kaminsky directs. The character of Pierrot is inspired by real and imaginary people, and is seen at various periods of his life — between his 20's and 70's. He weeps, stumbling shivering with cold, remembering the dance world of the '40s and '50s, when Black dancers were still outsiders. As an older man, rescued and rehabilitated into society, Pierrot cannot remember his "lost years." Only his caretakers, carefully reconstructing his past from his scattered remembrances, can fill the gaps for him. The play captures the imagery, disorientation and unbalanced loss of dignity that accompany homelessness.
