Description

Black Ulysses awakens on an exotic island where he seeks refuge from a society rife with gun violence and oppression. Loosely inspired by Walt Disney's The Jungle Book, Joseph Campbell's Hero Mythology, Romaire Bearden's Black Odyssey and Harlem Renaissance art, this one-person hip-hop mashup of lyrical poetry and live music comments on the Black experience in America. Recently honoured Off-Broadway, at San Diego Fringe, New Zealand Fringe and the Kennedy Center, this tour-de-force update on Homer's epic tale dives into the healing power of community through fantasy, myth, creativity and escape.
