Black & Tan Fantasy Festival Program #1
New Orleans Anonymous written By: Ramona Mona Webb
New Orleans Anonymous is a dramatic comment on New Orleans pre and post Katrina. It uses interdisciplinary performance inspired by anonymously voiced interviews re-conditioned for the stage. Listen as the sassafras voice of reality tangles with the surreal character metaphors. This gumbo Ya Ya of a cast turns the stage into a brassy surprise of southern sophistication and conflict. Watch as Old New Orleans and New New Orleans get into a crawfish boil feud over who is better to lead the treasured Crescent City into its resurrection. Ramona as well as some of the members of the cast are from Louisiana, experienced Katrina, and view this piece as a prayer of healing for all who were affected.
