Solo theater piece by Reynaldo Piniella “No History”
No History by Reynaldo Piniella is a solo theater piece about two men, born in two different centuries, struggling to leave a mark on society. This diasporic journey will take us from the present-day celebration of hip-hop to the frontlines of the fight for Cuban and Puerto Rican independence to the streets of New York City during the Harlem Renaissance, and back to where we are today. We will experience the music of the Caribbean, the joy of eating soul food for the first time, the poetry of Harlem, and rediscover San Juan Hill, the community that was uprooted to build Lincoln Center. With guest appearances from Billie Holiday, Langston Hughes, and W. E. B. DuBois, this coming-of-age story will make us celebrate our shared history and inspire us to save our grandmother’s recipes.
