About this show

Slanguage is the latest boundary-smashing creation from Universes - a troupe of five multi-disciplined performers hailing from the South Bronx. Fusing poetry, jazz riffs, and Hip-Hop with politics, down home blues, and Spanish boleros, the group creates a unique performance, turning the poem into a communal act. Tracking the evolution of their poetic language from childhood rhymes to community rituals to literary gospel, Universes integrate theatre and street with a humor and emotional truth. Jo Bonney directs.
