About this event
PUSH THE BUTTON focuses on the concept of heroism in the context of social justice protests and their aftermath. Drew and Dwayne have always shared an enthusiasm for comic book superheroes, an enthusiasm which has helped them connect with young people in creative experiences. In this new piece, they use superheroes and supervillains to create an environment that presents things in clear binaries — good versus evil, hero versus villain — only to challenge that foundation. What happens when the villain sees the error of their ways? How does the hero react when they don’t get to save the day? Can the community support a villain who renounces villainy?
