“Exuberant, insightful . . . a work of heart and soul that distills the essence of [New York] city.”–The New York Times
For their Minnesota debut, the Universes take the stage with their unclassifiable mix of spoken-word, hip-hop, jazz, down-home blues, theater, and street politics. Assembled as 30 vignettes, Slanguage conjures New York City’s multiethnic culture at its finest–and most joyous–moments. The five eclectic personalities creating the Universes’ brand of street theater find their heroes in “Chinese shoes at a Latin house party/Playing spoons to disco toons/With a knish in my left hand/And the blues in my heart.” Copresented with the National Performance Network (NPN), and presented in association with the MN Spoken Word Association.
