La Jolla Playhouse’s Without Walls (WOW) series offers an invitation to rethink theatre through intriguing and playful experiences. This world premiere brings world-class artists directly to you, fostering a connection with each other and allowing art to flourish. Called by TIME magazine, “bold, extreme theatre.”
Spittin’ Truth to Power While Light Leaping for the People is an intergenerational piece using images, music and storytelling styles reminiscent of the griot. Between fire and brimstone preaching, the intimate vulnerability of prayer, and the invitation to fellowship, renowned San Diego poet and Playhouse Leadership Council member Alyce Smith Cooper and acclaimed DJ and musician Shammy Dee are reaching to penetrate the hearts of the people. This three-part spoken verse will encompass the juxtaposition of past/present, yin/yang, male/female with the dream of transformations hoped for and imagined. It is both a personal moment and a collective piece – a springing forward into a leap of light.
The current Without Walls projects can be streamed now on Broadway on Demand at https://www.broadwayondemand.com/series/5HSxbUrVGQB4-la-jolla-playhouse-digital-wow-series
