About This Show

Claudia Rankine’s brilliant, lyrical examination of the state of race in America, which she now translates to the stage, raises an urgent flag of emergency in our country. Citizen challenges audiences to rumble with the devastating and accumulating impact of the most intimate indifferences and aggressions of daily life in these United States. Winner of the National Book Award for 2014, Citizen: An American Lyric has been heralded as one of the best books of the past decade and is the only book of poetry ever to land on The New York Times list of Best Sellers. Working with her longtime collaborator, video artist John Lucas, the piece is visually stunning and emotionally moving as it brings us face to face with ourselves at a time when we’re looking elsewhere for answers.
