GENERAL EVENT NOTICE: Due to recent concern over the spread of the corona virus, Toledo.com suggests confirming with the actual organizers that this event is still proceeding as planned.

Event Details:

The University of Toledo Black Theatre Ensemble, along with students and faculty from the University of Toledo Departments of Theatre
& Film and Communications collaborated on a hybrid-theatrical performance that seeks to use the obstacles of our current moment as an opportunity to innovatively engage with an urgent and necessary story. Working alongside community artists, this interdisciplinary ensemble will stream a version of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" that pulls out the themes of fighting against systems of oppression found in Verne’s novel that still persist today. Part movie, part theatre, part radio show – this performance will be streamed online and feature a blend of art, dance, theatre, and hip hop to turn this classic novel on its head.
