KC Melting Pot Theatre in collaboration with DNAWORKS, will bring Kansas City native Christina Anderson’s HOLLOW ROOTS to Just Off Broadway Theatre for three performances this September.
Featured in the Under the Radar Festival produced by New York’s Public Theatre in 2013, HOLLOW ROOTS questions the notion of a “post-racial” society. Diving into one woman’s quest to understand her identity, she asks if it is possible for a person to live their life unaffected by race or gender. The text chronicles the journey, accompanied by a videoscape of her mind’s eye and live cello music recalling the sounds of her childhood.
Directed by Daniel Banks, the production will feature actor Nicole Gramlich, musician/composer Maritri Garrett, video designer Kate Freer, costume and set designer Murell Horton, lighting designer Driscoll Otto and stage manager Alexis Miles.
Anderson’s BLACK TOP SKY was developed at Yale School of Drama in 2011 and produced by Unicorn Theatre in 2013, and MAN IN LOVE was part of the 2017 Origin KC Festival at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre.
HOLLOW ROOTS will play September 14th and 15th at Just Off Broadway Theatre, 3051 Central in Penn Valley Park, Kansas City Mo. 64108
