DumbSun is a narrative based show about the mystery that surrounds the origins of Disney’s Dumbo and famous jazz musician Herman “Sonny” Poole Blount aka Sun Ra. The interweaving narrative expands into a colorful installation utilizing music, archival documents, and sculptures to create links to World War 2, South America, and the Thomas Edison-Nikola Tesla’s war of currents.
