Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide, Volume 1 is a new play conceived, written and performed by Judith Sloan and directed by Michael Dinwiddie with music director Frank London. What happens when a middle-aged teaching artist survives a near fatal car accident and collides with the oncoming traffic of Hip Hop culture? In Yo Miss! Judith Sloan remixes stories from twenty years of teaching immigrant/refugee teenagers and incarcerated youth as they grapple with the cataclysmic global events that shaped them. Through poetry, vivid character portrayals and music, Sloan brings their tales to life along with her own unraveling stories, and the ripple effects of the Holocaust on her family. Through art, teaching, humor, and pathos, she discovers resilience in the face of adversity. Proceeds to benefit EarSay’s Youth Education project for immigrant and refugee teenagers.
