Monteze Freeland’s Kalopsia
Part of the CSA Performance Series
Thursday, June 18PM
“When I was 25, a therapist told me that I was retarded.”
Kalopsia (kal-op-see-uh) is the delusion of things being more beautiful than what they are. Both courageous and comic, this daring new musical takes a look inside the world of mental illness in the black community. Kalopsia is a no-holds-barred journey into a surreal world of music, glam, faith, and healing.
Monteze is an actor, director, playwright and Artistic Director of The LAB Project. Monteze is also a teaching artist who is the current Director of Education for Quantum Theatre and Artistic Associate for Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Company.
