REDCAT says…

Alpert Award-winning theater artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s soul-stirring performance draws on hip-hop’s interdisciplinary foundations to create a kaleidescopic investigation of collective responsibility in an era of climate change. Within an evolving modular stage set-cum-art installation—an interactive shotgun cabin constructed from reclaimed materials by celebrated visual artist Theaster Gates—Bamuthi and his performers deliver powerful verse and impassioned songs that examine notions of “living green,” and what that might mean to communities under social and economic duress. Backed by documentary video, red, black and GREEN: a blues is shaped by stories gathered during urban eco-festivals organized by Bamuthi Joseph in cities across the U.S., and offers an expansive vision of environmental justice, social ecology and what it means to nutrure our selves and the planet. Directed with passionate urgency by Michael John Garcés, Bamuthi is joined onstage by a magnetic and multitalented cast, including Tommy Shepherd (a.k.a. Emcee Soulati), Traci Tolmaire and Yaw.
