UNIVERSES, Invited Artist Faculty (2011)
Universes is a National / International ensemble Company of multi-disciplined writers and performers who fuse Poetry, Theater, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Politics, Down Home Blues and Spanish Boleros to create moving, challenging and entertaining theatrical works. The group breaks the bounds of traditional theater to create their own brand, inviting old and new generations of theater crafters as well as the theater goers and newcomers to reshape the face of American Theater. The company consists of four core members: Steven Sapp, Mildred Ruiz, Gamal Abdel Chasten, and Ninja. They are the Hemispheric Institute’s Artists in Residence for 2010-2011.
