"Ours is the struggle of a lifetime, or maybe even many lifetimes,
and each one of us in every generation must do our part" John Lewis
Be Safe Out There!
A Poem to the African Diaspora brings together five performance artists from across the shores of the icy Atlantic; vocalist, Lenna Bahule in Mozambique and four dancers in South Africa (Lindiwe Rose), Brazil (Rubens Oliveira), USA (myself) and Trinidad & Tobago (Nigel Sanchez). We bring visual stories from each country of history, of heritage and of self in order to rediscover our connection as dispersed flowers from one root, Mother Africa.
