INSURRECTION: HOLDING HISTORY

directed by India Nicole Burton

From the playwright of Bootycandy: A collage-and-meta exploration wherein a modern-day black graduate student finds himself and his 189-yr-old grandfather transported back to slavery times and the Nat Turner rebellion. Insurrection is a work unafraid to utterly confound most traditional narrative assumptions, and in a surreal version of history also manages to address contemporary police violence against African-Americans, to explore who has the right to tell whose story, to look critically at African-American attitudes toward homosexuality, and to explore how different generations adhere to different rules.
