Slanguage

Created by Universes
Directed by Jo Bonney

July 21–August 13, 2005

@ the Plaza Theatre
The Boston Center for the Arts

Company One is proud to present the nationally touring phenomenon Slanguage for a special limited Boston engagement. Slanguage – called “STOMP for the larynx” by the Los Angeles Times – is the latest boundary-smashing creation by Universes, a troupe of five multi-disciplined performers hailing from the South Bronx. Fusing poetry, jazz riffs, and hip-hop with politics, down home blues, and Spanish boleros, the group creates a unique theatrical experience turning the poem into a communal act. Tracking the evolution of their poetic language from childhood rhymes to community rituals to literary gospel, Universes integrates theatre and the street with humor and emotional truth.
