About this show

South of the 8 is a fascinating, group-devised work that explores issues of culture and identity in a specific local community, breaking down stereotypes by sharing the rich and diverse the stories of the people who live there. Following an intensive interview process, five individuals from neighborhoods south of the I-8 were selected to work with Ping Chong + Company and the Playhouse to create and perform an "opera for the spoken word," based on their own narratives. This moving, nontraditional theater piece showcases the real-life stories and experiences of individuals from a variety of backgrounds, shining a light on the unique character of communities South of the 8.
