    Angela's Mixtape

    New Georges (Susan Bernfield, Artistic Director; Sarah Cameron Sunde, Associate Director), the OBIE Award-winning downtown theater company founded in 1992, and Hip-Hop Theater Festival will present the premiere of OBIE Winning Actress/Pulitzer-nominated playwright Eisa Davis' " ANGELA'S MIXTAPE," directed by Liesl Tommy. Ms. Davis who was recently seen on Broadway in last season’s award-winning musical Passing Strange will portray herself and Linda Powell, last seen on Broadway in the Tony-nominated revival On Golden Pond, will portray her aunt, professor and activist Angela Davis.

    Using the rhythms of music and memory, in "ANGELA’S MIXTAPE" Eisa tells the story of a radical upbringing on the dividing line between Oakland and Berkeley, California in a family that includes her aunt, professor and activist Angela Davis. Time shifts between the 70s, 80s, and 90s as smoothly as a DJ fading from song to song. Each track, each memory, has a built-in switch to the next, for theatrical momentum that keeps on building. Crossing cultural borders as it scratches through time, the play moves from Angela's hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, to the House of Detention where she was once held prisoner, to the playgrounds of Eisa's Bay Area public schools, the dorm rooms of the Ivy League and the shores of Senegal. The music crosses styles and decades, but it's hip-hop and a b-girl stance that keeps the piece bouncing in the present. It's just your average black macrobiotic revolutionary dancing family.
