A Novena for Nola St. Josephine Sinclair
Kathy Randels’ Mama Nola appears for her first concert post-Katrina. Though rough around the edges, she gives her children a message of hope for their fair city. Previously performed at Jose Torres Tama’s open studio salon and in Miami for the National Performance Network conference.

Just the Facts
Mondo Bizarro presents a multi-disciplinary performance that examines the mainstream media’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina. This collaboration between Mondo Bizarro and M.U.G.A.B.E.E of Jackson, Mississippi, utilizes stylized gesture sequences, video installation and spoken word to comment on the cacophony of factual and fictional information reported after the storm. This piece will be featured in UPROOTED: The Katrina Project, produced by Alternate ROOTS.

6(degrees) of NYC
Nicole Boyd performs a dance piece based on a recent visit to the big city: as fabulous as that city is, there is no place like home.

Also featured, an excerpt from Old Orleans:
a documentary about the clash between a storm and a city
William Sabourin O’Reilly's eloquent testimony captured by the lens and battery powered A.M. radio of one survivor.
