Blessing the boats by Sekou Sundiata

blessing the boats by Sekou Sundiata

This event is part of the River to River Festival

blessing the boats: the remix is a powerful re-imagining of one of Sekou Sundiata’s seminal plays. Originally presented as a solo performance, director Rhodessa Jones revisits Sundiata’s story of life-threatening illness and miraculous recovery as told through the unique interplay of three next-generation poet/performers: Will Power, Carl Hancock Rux, and Mike Ladd. These three compelling voices revive Sundiata’s incisive writing and explore Sundiata’s complexities and contradictions. This “remix” of Sundiata’s play encompasses language, music, and visual projections of healing and hope.

Blink Your Eyes: Sekou Sundiata Revisited celebrates Sekou Sundiata’s broad vision for bold, rigorous, multidisciplinary artistic expression that emerges from a love for one’s community, a passion for real democracy and social justice, and a vision for a better world. In venues across New York City from April to October 2013, we invite you to celebrate Sundiata’s legacy through live performances by the artists he inspired— in the places and communities that inspired him.
