May 25th: PARTY PEOPLE by Universes
Party People by UNIVERSES is a hyperkinetic musical theater work that mixes live video, hip hop, jazz, rock, gospel, blues, Latin rhythms, and spoken word to unlock the radical and complicated legacy of the Black Panthers and Young Lords. These seminal activists fought injustice, provided free food and medical care for their communities and struggled against a government determined to suppress them. Based on dozens of interviews between UNIVERSES and Party members, Party People imagines the Black Panthers and Young Lords reuniting today at an art opening curated by a couple of young counter culturists, where old wounds open and generations collide. What is the price of being a revolutionary, and what happens to those who come after?
