anitafrika! dub theatre's audre lorde festival (april 28th - may 1st)

Six artists in residence take the stage at anitafrika! dub theatre's audre lorde festival. The works are a combination of theatrical practices: biomyth and dub. Founder d'bi young (left) named the festival in honour of audre lorde who created biomythology and continues to incorporate ahdri zhina mandiela's creation of dub theatre into her works. Through mythologized personal narratives each artist weaves tales that are deeply intimate yet universal in their ability to connect with the audience. The festival runs April 28th to May 1st, with three performances per night.
