Ujima Theatre presents


by Suzan-Lori Parks

directed by Roosevelt Tidwell and starring Preach Freedom and Amilcar Hill

A hard-hitting hip-hop-journey of dizzying verbal virtuosity. Three card monte is the name of the game, and Lincoln is the master. His brother, Booth, an eager wannabe, can't understand why Lincoln would give up the excitement of the hustle to put on white-face and play a dead president at a shabby arcade. In the cramped single room they share, the brothers race headlong toward an historical blow-up. Their harsh and profane street lingo becomes poetry in the hands of 2002 Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks.

Tony Conrad @ Hallwalls

Culled from nearly 40 years of Hallwalls' still and video archives (1977–2014), this exhibition will serve as a prelude to Introducing Tony Conrad, the upcoming retrospective at the UB Art Gallery and Albright Knox Art Gallery, by showcasing a selection of performances and still imagery documenting Conrad's decades-long association with Hallwalls.
