Bamuthi's Word Becomes Flesh and D'bi.Young's blood-claat are presented as part of the New York City Hip-Hop Theater Festival.
Word Becomes Flesh features the movement and words of Marc Bamuthi Joseph in a series of letters to an unborn son. Poetry, tap, live music and visual art document nine months of pregnancy from a young, single father's perspective.
D'bi.Young's blood-claat is a journey through one woman's many facets: feminism, Black activism, self-love/hate, blood and dub poetry, set against the backdrop of life in the working class neighborhood of Whitfield Town in Kingston, Jamaica. blood-claat is at once a liberation chant, ceremonial dance, celebration of hybridity and dub poem.
