About the Event

Presented by The Bushwick Starr & National Black Theatre in association with Musical Theatre Factory 

YOU. Yes, you. Whoever and however you are.  You follow me through low-hanging roots and vines. Are you in ancestral  woods? A juke joint? All of the above/below? YOU are in SKiNFoLK: An  American Show, a wide-sweeping concert/play structured in seven  movements that explores the questions and limits (?) of blackness,  performance, and country in a sensuous and reflective cabaret  experience. As the music sounds, you drop down into this ritual of  liberation, bearing witness to the playwright-performer's identity,  heritage and legacy as a black woman in this America. This play collides  with blues, jazz, neo soul, pop, rock and spiritual black legacies.  What will you see in the archive? Who will you meet? What is down at the  root? What color is the sky again?

The cast features Tsebiyah Mishael Derry*, Lori Sinclair Minor* and Jillian Walker* Musicians are Kasaun Henry, Bryce Collins, and Jason Smith
