Bertha Van Ation 3.0, Ripley-Grier Studios, 5/20-5/21, “follows three siblings en route to The Promised Land (“land of almond milk, healthcare & honey”). The siblings use recycled myths, parables, and trap beats to navigate their way to freedom. Bertha 3.0 acts as an allegory that explores and exposes American capitalism and migration. The music of Janelle Monáe, Kanye West & Sam Sparro underscore the episodic play series and set the tone for the Afrofuturistic tall tale.” MARIO WOLFE (BFA, Stage Management, ’16) is the playwright.
