Triple Decker, by Marc Levitt

80 Washington St, Providence, RI   (view map)

Marc Levitt’s Triple Decker is set in a tenement in South Providence which six immigrant groups — Armenian, Cape Verdean, African, Dominican, Cambodian, and Irish — call home. Levitt notes that the piece is “interesting conceptually and musically. The issues of adjusting to and learning from each other and remaking America comes into play in text and through the music of the musicians representing the different nationalities.” Levitt and storyteller Valerie Tutson are the narrators; musicians include Phil Edmonds (Irish whistles), Carlos DeLeon (Dominican trumpeter), and Song Heng (Cambodian xylophone), under the direction of Chris Turner. Triple Decker will be presented at the Paff Auditorium at the URI Providence Campus, 80 Washington St, at 7:30 pm | Free | 401.277.5206 | uri.edu/prov/arts

"A narrative history of a fictional triple-decker tenement in South Providence and of six immigrant groups who lived there over the course of 60 years. These groups, Armenian, Cape Verdean, African, Dominican, Cambodian, and Irish, change themselves, each other and the idea of what being an 'American' means during their everyday interaction," narrated by Levitt and storyteller Valerie Tutson with music performed by members of the communities represented in the piece, under the direction of Chris Turner
