About this show

From Baptist church pews to the streets of the U.S.A., AmericanBlackout is a journey through the labyrinth of ethnicity, sexuality and individual identity in the land of the free. "The piece is my reflection on the experience of existing as a gay Black man in the United States," says writer/director Robb Leigh Davis. "It's my viewpoint of a country unsure of its future, struggling through its present and, in a willfully ignorant fashion, turning a blind eye to its past." AmericanBlackout was previously seen in the summer of 2006 as part of the 15th annual HOT! Festival at Dixon Place and the 10th Annual New York International Fringe Festival.
