The Survival Project

Written and Directed by Mihai Măniuțiu

Robert Cohen Theatre

This original work by Mihai Măniuțiu was inspired by The Green Book, a travel guide for African American motorists, published annually between 1936 and 1966. Măniuțiu has used this historical work as inspiration for an original dance-theatre performance piece that explores exclusion and provides a survival guide for those who, given the odds stacked against them, “should not survive.”

UCI Drama – 2018/19 Season

“Against All Odds”

History provides countless examples of individuals, communities, and nations facing desperate, unjust, and even seemingly impossible circumstances; yet somehow, time and again, they find the will and the means to overcome. These are the stories that make great theatre, and indeed, that keep us personally inspired and hopeful in difficult times. As citizens of this particular sociopolitical moment, when we are bombarded from every outlet to the brink of despondent apathy, we invite you to join us in living journeys of those who were faced with substantial adversity, but survived – and thrived – against all odds.

- Gary Busby, Drama Chair/Producing Artistic Director
