WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Congo Square's workshop staging of Deep Azure was featured this past June at the Apollo Theater as part of New York's Hip-Hop Theatre Festival 2005. The Chicago staging will be part of Chicago's first Hip-Hop Theatre Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art. This new full-length play inspired by an actual incident, uses heightened language, pulling from jazz slang, blues slang and hip-hop to tell the tale of how the anorexic girlfriend of a murdered student finds strength fighting for justice. A woman's negative self-image, society's perceptions of the African American male and dangerous jealousy between friends frame this exhilarating new piece.
