The NOLA Project presents a contemporary Frankenstein story set in the fiercely competitive art world. White, written by 2022 Pulitzer winner James Ijames and directed by Beau Bratcher, is the company’s first theatrical production in NOMA’s Lapis Center for the Arts.
Performances take place on March 1, 2, 5, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 19, 29, 30, and 31, at 7:30 pm.
Gus is an ambitious artist with his sights set on a major exhibition. Unfortunately, he doesn’t quite fulfill the museum’s stated desire for “different voices.” With the aid of actor Vanessa, Gus creates the brash Balkonaé Townsend persona. All goes to plan until Balkonaé takes control and Gus has to face his creation head-on to ridiculous results.
White is a dark comedy intended for mature audiences. The content includes overt racism as well as microaggressions against BIPOC people. It also contains adult language, examples of homophobia and misogyny, and a simulated sex scene.
