Lake Walking, Revolutionary Talking is an interactive and experimental performance evolving from WO2WA’s published poetry anthology, Black Rootedness: 54 Poets from Africa to America. Poets from Kenya, Ghana, and the U.S. guide the show using the Sankofa principle: “it is not taboo to go back for what you left behind.” Topics explored range from structural racism to memories shared in a matriarch’s kitchen, using a multimodal approach that includes dance, music and spoken word. By traversing across continents, a story of redemption and connection will emerge, creating space for each audience member to practice self- reflection and transcending boundaries.
