YBCA and Youth Speaks presents Marc Bamuthi Joseph Scourge World Premiere

Co-commissioned by Youth Speaks and YBCA, Scourge, is the headline event of the Hip-Hop Theater Festival: Bay Area 2005. Emerging performance star Bamuthi Joseph fuses hip-hop, spoken word and live music in an exploration of the narrow space between history, myth and speculation in this revolutionary look at the tragic history of the artist’s native Haiti. Breaking the boundaries of racism and ignorance to reach a new kind of understanding, Scourge is a rich collaboration between Bamuthi Joseph and a host of veteran talents: renowned Latin Jazz composer John Santos, choreographers Rennie Harris, Stacey Printz, and Adia Whitaker, and director Kamilah Forbes. These artists together with the emerging voices of three young writers from Youth Speaks, will create what Bamuthi Joseph calls "a theatrical exorcism."
