Event

T.N.B.
T.N.B. is a world premiere site-specific performance installation inspired by indigenous healing rituals that works to exorcise the demons that haunt the African-American male. Written and directed by Thomas Riccio

Spooky, played by David Jeremiah, returns home after a botched home invasion to find his house inhabited, by ghosts both real and imagined. Laying in wait is Roosevelt Jones, played by Justin Locklear, who is Spooky's "identical" twin brother.  Roosevelt is also a white "cracker" who variously supports, mocks, and challenges Spooky to consider his life, his performance of blackness and self-destruction.

Also inhabiting the Spooky house is Charleene, played by Rhianna Mack, as the helping spirit of the African-American woman. She, like Spooky, is caught in a web of inheritances and is variously exploited, abused, and idealized. She and Spooky need to kill a part of themselves in order to heal.

Mama, played by Becki McDonald, inhabits the kitchen, and is always steady and supportive as she pushes Spooky to face his demons.  The trans-historical figure of Storm Crow, played by well-known slam artist Jonathan "GNO" White, has been wandering America for 500 years and moves Spooky to his transcendence.

T.N.B. places its audiences inside a former west Dallas drug stash house and each performance will be limited to 20 audience members who will inhabit the house, able to move and follow the "healing in the hood" unfold. The house is a metaphoric environ for that in which we all inhabit. Urban America.

Site-specific performance installations are an innovative and experiential interdisciplinary hybrid that weaves performance, theatre, visual, sound, and media expressions. The house for this performance is located in the transforming West Dallas arts district, which, like the performance, is shedding its inheritances, healing and becoming something new.

T.N.B. was conceived, written, and directed by Thomas Riccio, an award winning playwright, director, and scholar of indigenous and ritual performance. The design team includes Scot Gresham-Lancaster (sound), Dale Seeds (settings), Mona Kasra (video), and Annell Brodeur (costumes). Lori McCarty, producer and Michael Cleveland, production manager.

Dead White Zombies is a Dallas-based post disciplinary performance and media group that places an emphasis on new, experimental, and collectively created work that defies categories and conventions. We simply do things the way we want to do it, where, and how because we don't know what else to do.
