Innovative New Orleans theater ensemble NEW NOISE presents Jubilee, an immersive original performance that traverses a hundred years in the life of one family on Alabamas Mobile Bay. Audiences join the actors for a family supper that seeks to untangle the knot of white Southern identity, unspooling threads of personal ancestry, Southern duality, and the ravages of racism. Conceived by NEW NOISE Co-Artistic Directors Philip Cramer and Bear Hebert, and directed by company member Bonnie Jean Gabel, Jubilee features live original music, a dynamic, monumental set, and a shapeshifting ensemble.
Act II of the performance features a literal supper, with conversation hosted by the ensemble.
Jubilee is the final piece in NEW NOISEs New Southern Hymnal trilogy, following Oxblood (2014) and Runnin Down the Mountain (2013).
[Note: Jubilee includes strong language and scenes of racism]
