More Information


rbGb reunites seven artists from the acclaimed work, the break/s: a mixtape for stage – writer/performer Marc Bamuthi Joseph; director Michael John Garcés; choreographer Stacey Printz; drummer/beatboxer Tommy Shepherd; documentary filmmaker Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi; lighting designer James Clotfelter; and media designer David Szlasa. Joseph is joined onstage in the performance by Shepherd, dancer/actor Traci Tolmaire, and vocalist/visual artist Theaster Gates, who is also designing the set. Also returning to the team of collaborators is costume designer, Mai-Lei Pecorari, who previously worked with Joseph on _ Scourge_.

Set into Gates’ malleable stage installation of repurposed building materials and clay objects, and heightened by Jacobs-Fantauzzi’s vivid films and vibrant graffiti murals from Life is Living, the poetry and performance in rbGb puts forward the idea that valuing your own life, and the life of your community, is the first step to valuing planet Earth.
