An explosive fusion of storytelling and the infectious rhythms of jazz, gospel, and hip hop, Ameriville puts the state of the Union under the microscope –race, poverty, politics, history and government, examining our country through the lens of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. New York based UNIVERSES is an ensemble of multi-disciplinary writers and performers who fuse poetry, theater, down home blues and Spanish boleros, creating their own inimitable brand of performance.
