An explosive fusion of storytelling and the infectious rhythms of jazz, gospel, and hip hop, Ameriville puts the state of the Union under the microscope - race, poverty, politics, history and government, examining our country through the lens of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. New York based UNIVERSES is an ensemble of multi-disciplinary writers and performers who fuse poetry, theater, down home blues and Spanish boleros, creating their own inimitable brand of performance.
Festival presentation supported by The Ford Foundation.
