HOLLOW ROOTS by Christina Anderson

Updated: Aug 3, 2019

Hollow Roots, by award-winning playwright Christina Anderson, questions the notion of a “post-racial” society by looking at one woman’s quest to understand her identity. The protagonist challenges herself to find a person of color who has a “neutral” identity.

The revelations from her journey are poignant and may be surprising to some audience members. The exquisite and trans- porting text is accompanied by a videoscape expressing her inner life, as well as by live cello music that recalls the sounds of her childhood. Directed by DNAWORKS Co-Director Daniel Banks with Actress Nicole Gramlich, Musician/Composer Maritri Garrett, Video Designer Kate Freer, Costume and Set Designer Murell Horton, and Production Stage Manager Alexis Miles.
