WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Working Theater presents a "First Stage Presentation" of Killa Dilla (An Ogunde minstrel show for Jim Crow), by OyamO, directed by Tony Award nominee André De Shields. OyamO's ambitious and confrontational Killa Dilla employs a kaleidoscope of performance styles including blackface minstrelsy, rap and evangelical preaching in an Ogunde-style use of song and dance. The story centers around LaBarsha, a woman whose own survival is threatened by her unresolved rage. It is a powerful call for self-examination and healing that challenges our cultural assumptions with wicked humor, outrage and ultimately, compassion.
