He was called a poet, playwright and prophet, a radical, monster and visionary. Amiri Baraka challenged audiences for more than fifty years. A man who embodied the changing, often violent, times and events during what has been called "the civil rights era". Using The Dutchman, his Obe award winning play, as the central work, we will honor Baraka in his terms: criticism, music, peotry, through laughter, tears and questions.
The Dutchman-Henry, a young black student, meets the beautiful, enchanting and forbidden Lula on a subway train in New York. This begins a dangerous and thrilling encounter as the the two battle for understanding passion and ultimately their lives.
Audience members are encouraged to stick around for an engaging Q&A session immediately following the performance.
