red black and GREEN: a blues

red, black and GREEN: a blues

Presented as part of The Process Series

January 21 and 22, 2011
8:00 pm
Gerrard Hall

Conceived and created by Marc Bamuthi Joseph, this full-length, multimedia theater work emphasizes that “green living” is not possible without valuing planet Earth. Landing at the intersection of green economics and black psychology, rbGb aims to jumpstart a conversation about environmental racism, social ecology and collective responsibility in the climate change era through a ground-breaking work of contemporary theater. Joseph and collaborator Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi (creator of the films for the break/s: a mixtape for stage), along with vocal/visual artist Theaster Gates, are using a community-based research process to generate stories, interviews and poems that will serve as the basis for rbGb’s script and stage set.
