The Poetry of August Wilson & UNIVERSES in UniSon, commissioned by The Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
Berkeley Rep Announces the 2016 Ground Floor Summer Residency Lab, where UNIVERSES will further develop UNISON.
The Goodman Theatre hosted a UNIVERSES Lab
UNIVERSES previously "Universeizing" selections of Wilson's Poetry at The Poetry Foundation (Chicago) as part of The Goodman Theatre's August Wilson Celebration (March 2015). Follow this link to the event…
Opening in April is the world premiere of UniSon by UNIVERSES, with the poetry of August Wilson, directed by Robert O'Hara (The Wiz). OSF's resident ensemble UNIVERSES (Party People, Ameriville) sought out and were granted access to August Wilson's poetry catalogue in association with his widow Constanza Romero and his estate. The result is a high-energy, music-filled exploration of the passing on of legacy and the reconstruction of collective memory, inspired by the poetry of one of our most revered playwrights. Fusing poetry, theatre, movement and original music, UniSon gives OSF audiences the opportunity to see one of America's leading ensembles of color bring an American master to life through their signature theatrical aesthetic-for a new generation, in a new century, a new millennium.” - OSF
