Join McKnight Theater Artist Fellows Ansa Akyea and Shá Cage as they showcase new projects they've been developing over the course of the 2011-12 fellowship year.
Untitled New Work by Ansa Akyea
A West African dictator finds himself in exile and in hiding in Minnesota as a mall cop at the Mall of America. Haunted by his past deeds and bleak future prospects, he befriends a young African American coworker who helps, challenges and brings him face to face with his past and possibly his future.
N.I.G.G.E.R. by Shá Cage
Blending monologue, song, interviews and movement, this provocative new work features over 10 diverse characters and their related stories. N.I.G.G.E.R. is an experimental examination of the residual impact of this word (through a female lens). Cage will showcase various segments of this work-in-progress.
