Professor Diablo’s True Revue 

When: Tue., Aug. 28, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

"Relations" is the theme for the third installment of this performance series that links documentary field-work and artistic process. The principals, as usual, are luminaries. Howard L. Craft staged the first installment of his black superhero epic, Jade City Chronicles, at Manbites Dog Theater. Anita Woodley is an accomplished writer, performer, director, producer and journalist, whose Mama Juggs won awards last year while raising breast cancer awareness. Former Carolina Chocolate Drop Justin Robinson spins stories atop restless music from the Mary Annettes. Photographer Thaddaeus Edwards, who married Robinson in Massachusetts in 2009, is a founding member of New Traditions Theatre.

Presented by Duke's Center for Documentary Studies in partnership with the Hinge Literary Center, this episode is co-produced by Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern artistic director Jay O'Berski. Initially, the evening was going to be about marriage, but the theme splayed out as the performers talked about it. "We wanted to include material about kung fu grandmas and wise pimp stepfathers," O'Berski explained via email. "The thread is the unique and unlikely love stories that make all families worthy of artistic homage and scrutiny." —Chris Vitiello Disclosure: Vitiello has curated events for the Hinge.
