Description:
This piece is a dramatic interpretation of Mwatabu Okantah’s epic poem Cheikh Anta Diop: Poem for the Living using digital media, the performing body, and a multilingual cast to embody the spiritual and philosophical journey to Africa. This play explores Okantah’s autoethnography and shared African diasporic experiences of dislocation from the Maafa (African Holocaust) to the repatriation to Africa. In addition to English as the main language throughout the play, this play includes African, European, South Asian, and Middle Eastern languages representing the scattering of African peoples.
