There Are Other Worlds tells the story of Amri Akenyemi, a mother, Black activist, struggling yogi and woman serving fifteen years in a maximum security prison for a crime of passion. This play uses aerial arts, poetry and movement to show Amri's journey of healing her broken relationship with her teenage daughters, Gospel and Dreamah. An homage to rich friendships, motherhood, the Black Liberation Struggle and caring for one another's spirits, There Are Other Worlds, is a strong, timely and necessary addition to the current social dialogue.
