A Dark Comedy

Meet Edgar and Alice, a witty, long-married couple.

Rarely seen live, The Dance of Death is a caustic, hilarious dark comedy.

Uncover the Human Behind the Legend…

The legend of John Henry, the only African American tall tale, is based on the story of a real man. JH: Mechanics of a Legend melds the language of mechanics, century-old ballads, and primary historical records into a theatrical experience that explores the legend of John Henry.

Local artists join forces with Anya Martin of Hiawatha Project to measure the myth, the man, and the machine, revealing a poetic and dangerous truth inside the machinations of history, rooted in the economics of slavery.
