Quicksand

by Regina Robbins

directed by Anais Koivisto

Production Image: Quicksand 

In Quicksand, heightened theatricality, live music, and dance combine to immerse the audience in the 1920s: an era of incredible progress and unimaginable inequality. Robbins’ play explodes the conventions of literary adaptation, conveying multiple layers of reality simultaneously onstage. As we follow the journey of Helga Crane, a biracial woman, from the Deep South, through Chicago, New York, Denmark, and back, historical figures of the period appear unexpectedly; Broadway star Al Jolson sings “April Showers” on a New York City street, W.E.B. Du Bois lectures in a lady’s bedroom, and Paul Robeson performs a scene from The Emperor Jones.
