“…the world is all messed up. The nation is sick. Trouble is in the land; confusion all around… But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. Two beings caught in a landscape of contrasting violence and beauty where history and future collide calling on the fantastical and the real. An eclectic afro-futuristic visual and audio experience where encounters with the horror, joys, desires and longings of the state of being Black intertwine in an intimate meeting with (re)birth and death. The piece is a meditation moving through the middle passage, up from the Underground Railroad, and through to today when running, walking or existing while black could cost you your life.
