Between the Door and the Street: A Performance Initiated by Suzanne Lacy
Park Place between Vanderbilt and Underhill Avenues
Between the Door and the Street is a free public performance initiated by internationally celebrated artist Suzanne Lacy. Women and men of all ages will sit in small groups on the stoops of Park Place and—in the long-standing tradition of Brooklyn’s stoop culture—engage in unique and unscripted dialogues about social-justice issues and how they relate to feminism. The issues will include equity, changing gender roles, labor, violence, poverty, and migration. The audience will wander freely between stoops to observe and absorb the candid commentary, shaping a new understanding of feminism. Organized with the input of nineteen advisers, nearly eighty organizations, more than 300 individual participants, 120 volunteers, and the Park Place community, this is truly a collaborative effort.
