Universes ( is a multidisciplinary ensemble of writers and performers who fuse poetry, theater, jazz, hip-hop, politics, down home blues and Latin American boleros to create moving, challenging theatrical works. The group breaks the bounds of traditional theater to create their own brand, inviting old and new generations of theater crafters as well as the theater goers and newcomers to reshape the face of American theater.
