Iceland | Performance Space New York


The Obie Award-winning duo of writer, director and actor Roger Guenveur Smith and composer Marc Anthony Thompson are joined by former Urban Bush Woman Treva Offutt to “navigate the bloodstream” of two lovers — a painter and a dancer — whose saga volcano-hops from the Arctic to the tropics and back home to Brooklyn. Featuring soundscapes by Thompson, this erotically-charged journey begins as “nothing special/just love as usual” but soon negotiates fire and ice and “bombs bursting in air/red white black and blue.”

Smith’s widely celebrated works for the stage include A Huey P. Newton Story, Frederick Douglass Now, Inside the Creole Mafia and The Watts Towers Project. Among his extensive range of screen credits are numerous collaborations with Spike Lee in films such as Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, He Got Game, Summer of Sam, and the telefilm version of A Huey P. Newton Story
