It's May 17, 2060. The 17th Annual Post Racial America Day Rally. White people in America have been the minority for 17 years. The mixed race, gender fluid President of the United States, who refuses to disclose birth gender, speaks: "America is the great melting pot…MELT!"

Don't miss this somewhat-satirical and very timely performance exploring race, gender, and social justice in a not-too-distant possible future by the outstanding creator of "3/Fifths".

Now in its third year, Out of Line presents a new set of arresting, intriguing, and playful performances by some of New York City's most exciting contemporary artists.

We encourage all persons with disabilities to attend. To request additional information regarding accessibility or accommodations at a program, please email or call (646) 774-2482. Program venues are accessible via wheelchair accessibility points, and ASL interpretation can be arranged two weeks in advance.
