A one-night only Theatre in Video showing of ‘Mixtape of the Dead & Gone #1- egwu ọnwụ Ahamefula’, a shit-just-got-real Afro-dance-theater piece following Ahamefula moments after her death, in a tussle with Asa-#7, a Messenger called from ‘Onye Ozi’ Ancestor app, sent to collect them.
There will be a post-show Q & A with the creator/director Nkeiruka Oruche and some cast members sharing their creative process, a report-back on their cultural exchange trip to Nigeria, and what future plans lie ahead. You’ll also be invited into some interactive activities with song, movement and practices surrounding grief.
If you missed the initial stage production in June 2022, you’ll want to make sure you’re there this time! If you’ve seen it before, then you know you want to see it again!
This event is presented in partnership with Afro Urban Society, Dance Mission, Priority Africa Network, and World Arts West.
