HUMANITY is an original theatrical dance production that addresses multiple social issues including: suicide, sexism, racism, domestic violence, biases, human rights, addiction and disability awareness. Humanity was written, directed, and choreographed by Central Michigan University alumna, Tyler Lenn Bradley, and was designed and performed by Central Michigan University students and alumni.
HUMANITY premiered on February 26, 2015 as a CMU University Theatre studio production and was extremely well received. As a result, the production was awarded nine awards, including Production of the Year and Best Student Director, by the Central Michigan University Theatre, Interpretation and Dance Department. In addition, the Dean of Communications and Dramatic Arts sponsored an invitation only performance in May with the hope of continuing the show in the future.
Currently, HUMANITY has performed at various events and venues including Central Michigan University’s Martin Luther King Jr. Unity Ball Celebration.
The ultimate goal is to tour HUMANITY to colleges, universities, high schools and organizations around the country to encourage students and humans of all ages to discuss and be aware of important issues and spread the message of acceptance and love that our world so desperately needs.
