I Am America

February 28 & March 1, 2013  –  Whitney Theater

53 Wall Street,  New Haven, CT 06511


I Am America, directed by Mario Biagini, brings the poetry of Allen Ginsberg to life in a visceral performance with language culled from Ginsberg’s poetry as well as calls, shouts and traditional songs from the American South.  Original compositions by members of the Workcenter Open Program, developed in intensive collaboration over a period of three years, complement and build upon these sources.
