Presented as part of Mesa Art Center's Performing Live series.

  

BLACKBIRD, FLY weaves together a tapestry of movement, narrative, music and Haitian folklore to engage audiences in dialogue about critical questions of our time. Steeped in hip-hop aesthetic, this intimate duet between two preeminent sons of Haitian immigrants —composer/violinist Roumain, and arts activist & spoken word artist BAMUTHI —unveils their life stories in search of their identity and role models, and explores universal themes of tolerance and inclusion.

 

Support by The Arizona Commission on the Arts, WESTAF (the Western States Arts Federation) and the National Endowment for the Arts.
