Robin Hood: An Elegy

Robin Hood: An Elegy

August 2015

Written by Krysta Gonzales with parts devised by the ensemble.

This original work commissioned by the Generic Ensemble Company was in conversation with the #blacklivesmatter movement by depicting a black Robin Hood who travels through time, living through moments of state-sanctioned anti-black violence in the United States. It premiered at The VORTEX in August 2015.
