Tripping Over Roots is a new play by Heimark Artist-in-Resident, Jaymes Jorsling that follows three Black men from eras of enslavement, Jim Crow and the contemporary moment as they encounter each other in the woods. Confronting and seeking solace from the violences of their times, they clash, exchange and collaborate to find freedom. Tripping Over Roots is directed by Ken Matt-Martin MFA ‘19 and produced by the Department of Africana Studies/Rites and Reason Theatre, with support of the Center for the Study of Slavery & Justice, and the Heimark Artist-in-Residence Program.
