Everything That Rises Must ConvergeEVERYTHING THAT RISES MUST CONVERGE from a story of the same title by Flannery O'Connor and created for the stage by Karin Coonrod is a tragic-comic interracial seat-shifting dance by whites and blacks on a moving bus in America's deep south. Playing and speaking out the text verbatim, eight Colombari actors with razor-sharp precision create all the characters and all the narration. Georgia's red earth is slammed up against the eternal. O'Connor's voice spread out across the company of actors carries the power of apocalyptic comedy right into the audience.

Performer: Compagnia de' Colombari Theater Company (featuring Abigail Killeen of the Bowdoin Department of Theater & Dance)
