HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? debuts a film reimagining the traditional opera to pose a central question: “What happens to the black body when it is haunted by a ‘blackness’ outside of it?” The spoken, chanted, sung, and screamed libretto explores the consequences of centuries of global racial strife that are thrust upon on those born of African descent.
Free with Museum admission. Admittance is on a first-come, first-seated basis until capacity is reached.
