Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide, Volume 1.
Conceived, written and performed by Judith Sloan
Directed by Michael Dinwiddie
What happens when a middle-aged teaching artist survives a near fatal car accident and collides with the oncoming traffic of Hip Hop culture? In Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide, Vol. 1, Judith Sloan remixes stories from twenty years of teaching immigrant and refugee teenagers and incarcerated youth as they grapple with the cataclysmic global events that shaped them. Using poetry, vivid character portrayals and music, Sloan brings their tales to life along with her own unraveling stories of family secrets and the ripple effects of the Holocaust. Through art, teaching, humor, and pathos, she discovers resilience in the face of adversity.
Performed with Live Music including Frank London, founder of the Klezmatics
