Generic Ensemble Company and The VORTEX in Austin, Texas presents Robin Hood: An Elegy by local playwright Krysta Gonzales livestreaming on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV channel at howlround.tv on Friday, August 21 at 9pm EDT (Washington, DC) / 8pm CDT (Austin) / 6pm PDT (San Francisco).
Robin Hood: An Elegy follows a Black Robin Hood who magically transcends space and time experiencing state-sanctioned racism. Set both in 2015 and the past, Robin’s plight mirrors and invokes the ethos of #blacklivesmatter in a struggle to assert humanity, dignity, and cunning against long-standing foes. In an age-old fight against white supremacy for justice and freedom, will Robin prevail?
