‘Trikster’ performances to highlight classic characters
An innovative circus-inspired performance will focus on a grab bag of classic Southern trickster characters (Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox, Br'er Possum, etc.) but adapted for the 21st century.
Using contemporary circus techniques, live music, vivid costumes and delightfully oversized props, Assistant Professor of Voice and Movement Carlos Cruz and his students will examine, re-imagine and welcome back characters long present in the histories and iconographies of African American, Latino and Native American cultures in the Southeastern and Southwestern United States.
Outdoor performances are scheduled for Thursday, April 20, through Tuesday, April 25, on the Mobile Arts & Community Experience (MAX) on the Cato Plaza.
