REVIVAL: Millennial reMembering in the Afro NOW, is an Afro Futurist, devised dance theater work, inspired by the founding of the Committee on Black Performing Arts (CBPA), which marks its 50th anniversary this year. Utilizing the stories and characteristics of the Yoruba deities known as Orisha, REVIVAL is a multi-media and multi-site experience exploring the people and events that have catalyzed movements for social change through time. A non-linear narrative, REVIVAL is driven by the core question, what parts of our myths and stories do we choose to recall, remember, and re-invent in order to carry us forward repaired, restored, and revived?
