The Segal Center presents a staged reading of Feast, a theatrical exploration with vibrant music and dazzling dance of the magnificent, cross-continental Yoruba culture. Followed by a discussion with Elyse Dodgson, International Director, The Royal Court Theatre.
Originally produced in 2013 by the Young Vic and the Royal Court, this is the first presentation of Feast in the US.Afro-Caribbean traditions and ancestral lore come to life in this energetic work about three sisters who become divided at a crossroads on their way to a family dinner. From Nigeria in the 1700s through Brazil, Cuba, and the USA to London in 2013, the sisters survive by their spirits—spirits of courage, mischief, and incredible resilience.Buy tickets/get more info now
