Created by Jeff Becker, 7 Stages and ArtSpot Productions presents Sea of Common Catastrophe

Feb 2 – 12, 2017

7 Stages presents New Orleans’ based ArtSpot Productions ensemble as they lead a consideration of the profound transformations that have swept through New Orleans in the decade since Hurricane Katrina, and of our own roles and responsibilities as artists in the realities of gentrification and displacement. A dream-world imaging of a community inundated by a flood of change and upheaval.
