    ...And Jesus Moonwalks the Mississippi

    By Marcus Gardley
    Directed by Dr. Colleen Rua

    Set on the banks of the Mississippi during the Civil War, …And Jesus Moonwalks the Mississippi is a poetic journey of forgiveness and redemption inspired by the myth of Demeter and Persephone. An African-American man named Damascus is resurrected as a woman named Demeter, who has only three days to find her daughter Po'em and transmit her song before she has to return to death. This epic bricolage weaves traditional storytelling, gospel music, and humor together to create a rich, imaginative world that allows trees to preach, rivers to waltz, and Jesus to moonwalk.
