I had a great time! My 13 year old even got into it, singing and stomping his feet. I plan to see them everytime they r in LA!

Awesome event. Fusion theatre rocks my world! The weak link is the guy called Ninja, but Mildred Ruiz's voice is so amazing and strong, she can do blues or Latin music.... continued

Quotes & Highlights

“… as likely to kick some poetry as break out into a capella singing, to orchestrate a vocal exercise as they are to burst into a step show… Their energy and realness is unmatchable.” —The Village Voice


Last seen in Los Angeles with Slanguage, the multitalented artists of Universes return to the city with Live from the Edge, an evening that showcases the ensemble’s special brand of fusion theater. The group breaks the bounds of traditional theater to create their own brand of performance, blending poetry, theater, jazz, hip-hop, politics, down-home blues and Spanish boleros to create vibrant and thrilling theatrical pieces. _

Live from the Edge_ is a “best of” evening that tracks the evolution of the group’s poetic language—from childhood rhymes and community rituals to poetry, theater, hip-hop and gospel. A truly unique performance event that turns the poem into a communal act, Universes is redefining what theater is and who it speaks to.
