In this one-woman show, Nehassaiu deGannes gives voice to experiences of immigration, displacement, enslavement and resistance, from a brilliant multiplicity of perspectives by embodying more than a dozen characters drawn from history, personal memory and present day interviews. Part docu-drama, part ritual theatre – this play defies the segregation of American histories and invites us all to stand at the crossroads.
