4. Rodney King at Woolly Mammoth Theater Company.
“Rodney King is a thoughtful, provocative piece, at times shocking and sorrowful.” – Morgan Halvorsen.
Synopsis: Rodney King is a rhythm-driven mix of improvised movement and theatre, spoken word poetry, and as Roger himself describes, a “post-mortem interview with the man himself.” Nestled between excerpts from Willie D’s “F**k Rodney King” and King’s memorable May 1, 1992 “Can we all get along?” speech, the piece is an exploration of the legacy of an icon of American history. Rodney King captures the story of a flawed, good-hearted everyman, unraveling the myth of “the first reality TV star,” and by extension, revealing America’s endlessly complicated relationship with its racial past and present.
