Description

From Intersection's acclaimed resident theatre company Campo Santo and The Living Word Project (the resident theater company of Youth Speaks) comes the world premiere of Mirrors In Every Corner, written by emerging playwright Chinaka Hodge. This genre breaking and strikingly original theatre work chronicles the life of an African American family in Oakland alternately in the present and in 1988 after a mother gives birth to a white baby. Examining how race is lived in and through the body, this world premiere looks at the real and fictive construction of race. Against the backdrop of some of the most defining moments in recent US history, a family grapples with what it means to be black, what it means to be a family unearthing the complexities of race and identity in contemporary America. Written by emerging playwright Chinaka Hodge with an original jazz score by the acclaimed Ambrose Akinmusire and directed by Marc Bamuthi Joseph, the show also features Campo Santo co-founder Margo Hall and a dual scenic installation/exhibition by artist Evan Bissell.
