Our Own Voice Theatre Troupe presents UNSEEN CITY, an original performance piece written & directed by Alex Skitolsky with choreography by Kimberly Barksdale Baker.
An otherworldly conqueror claims the city of Memphis for his kingdom and sends forth a band of adventurers to survey the sprawling city. In their attempt to map the contours of Memphis’s public spaces, the ensemble of explorers (and the audience itself) come to re-imagine the city altogether. At once a theatrical performance, a form of civic practice, and an act of creative place-making, UNSEEN CITY reveals a Memphis greater than its past and popular associations.
