RADICAL EVOLUTION
SONGS ABOUT TRAINS
July 10-13
 
Songs About Trains explores the multiethnic history of the laborers who built the US Rail system. Taking on the thorny realities of immigration, labor, Manifest Destiny and the pillaging of Native American Land, a multiracial cohort of artists collaboratively create a performance that questions the complexity of progress and celebrates the victories of the multi-cultural, multilingual workforce that made our country what it is today.

About Radical Evolution
 
Radical Evolution is a multi-ethnic producing collective committed to creating artistic events that seek to understand the complexities of the mixed-identity existence in the 21st Century. We advocate for the visibility and representation for the fastest growing demographic in our nation - those who identify as more than one race or ethnicity. We aim to seed the field of downtown theatre with artists of color and assert our vision for cultural and social equity in our field, city, and nation.
