Cry You One

Cry You One
Description:

Cry You One by Mondo Bizarro and ArtSpot Productions from New Orleans

Part song, part story, part procession, this multi event presentation is a powerful musical, theatrical, and story telling journey about the effects of one of our country’s worst environmental disasters, Hurricane Katrina, the human displacement it caused, and its relevance to other communities, like southern Vermont.

Eleven New Orleans theater artists, Cajun style and African inspired musicians, and on-site designers take up residence in southern Vermont. In one of the most exciting residencies to date in Sandglass Theater’s Voices of Community series, Cry You One comes to Guilford, Putney, and Dummerston for two weeks of pageant performances, a New Orleans-style dance, a documentary film, a gumbo supper, beignet party, and school workshops, presented by Sandglass Theater and Guilford-based Vermont Performance Lab.
