About this show

Renowned poet, playwright, and performer Sekou Sundiata relates his experience with the life threatening illness of kidney failure and recovery through organ transplant. In a compelling autobiographical work that blends poetry, theatrical monologue, music, and griot storytelling, Sundiata brings his soul-stirring story of illness, life and discovery in the face of death to the stage with heartfelt precision and humor. Sundiata's incisive command for language and irreverent performance style propels this thought provoking journey into the realm of the universal in a poetic retelling of the power of the human spirit. blessing the boats is written and performed by Sekou Sundiata, directed by Rhodessa Jones, and includes dramaturgy by Roberta Uno.
