“Well, Shut My Mouth Wide Open!”

This performance draws its title from an emancipation era African-American expression, which revealed the reality that while slavery had been abolished, the promise of freedom was not real. Using physical theater, site specific performance and experimental movement, the work will comment on the state of African American theater today and its lack of freedom from the “standard” cannon.
