After touring 50 cities on a bus converted to run on recycled veggie oil, Hurricane Season was selected for a month-long run at the world renowned National Black Theater in Harlem with sold-out shows, and featured at the Newark Symphony Hall. This award-winning theater production interweaves spoken-word poetry, video projection, and a sound collage of personal testimonies. Hurricane Season connects the issues that surfaced in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to the "unnatural disasters" disenfranchised communities are experiencing nationwide and worldwide on a daily basis. Hurricane Season tackles environmental injustice, policing, militarization, corporate domination, and displacement as they manifest from one gulf to another, with a powerful tale of resistance, resilience, creativity and survival.
