Special Event: The Trans-Atlantic Time Traveling Company
by Holly Bass
A collaboration among Holly Bass, Theater Alliance and the Anacostia Playhouse
July 25 – 29, 2018
Three freedwomen travel through the American south in the 1860s with a medicine show, but unlike other snake oil salesmen of the day, these mysterious women give away their healing potions in an attempt to cure a dangerous disease that threatens to destroy future generations. A devised work of dance theater, The Trans-Atlantic Time Traveling Company combines vaudeville, sampling culture and time travel to engage the audience in a conversation about what it means to be free and ways we can move towards an equitable and just society.
