ZONG! MEETS GARRISON
AUGUST 10 @ 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Creators : Story by poet/griotte Setaey Adamu Boateng with M. NourbeSe Philip and Audience, Directed by M. NourbeSe Philip
Zong! There is no telling this story; it must be told.
Zong! meets Garrison is at the intersection of memory and forgetting, where the waters of the buried and erased Garrison Creek cross Queen Street and are “straightened” by History. Environmental, participatory and ritualistic, Zong! meets Garrison calls on audience participants and performers to immerse themselves collectively in the amnesia of history to reclaim the river, the noise of memory and the silence of those whose voices were lost.
Bring your voices! Blankets, cushions or chairs also. Wear white if possible.
