AFRICAN AMERICAN FESTIVAL OF THEATER & MUSIC

August 10 – 13

ROOT
Written & Performed by
Vanessa German
Directed by Heather Arnet

Back by popular demand after being featured as a Monday Night Special last summer. With just a few props and tens of thousands of words, spoken word poet/artist Vanessa German transports her audience from 1980s LA,  to MLK’s Memphis, to present day drug ravaged Juarez, before storming back to Katrina battered New Orleans. Driven by the musicality and rhythm of poetry and jazz, and using the Mississippi River as a guide, ROOT explores the different ways that we use art, words, dance, and music to stay alive. Director Heather Arnet, working with a talented team of video and sound designers, layers light and sound to create a visual landscape for German’s words.

August 15 – 17
