"The Legend of Yauna" Premieres at BAM 2/21-22

321 Ashland Place
Brooklyn, NY 11217
(718) 636-4100
On the nights of Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22, theatre-goers will experience the mind-bending fantasy and unique musical experience of "THE LEGEND OF YAUNA", an incredible tale created by the Grammy award-winning composer/music director Chris Berry and staged by director/choreographer Maija Garcia, the powerhouse behind the Tony award-winning Broadway production "FELA!". This theatrical music and dance experience shares the wisdom of Yauna, an ancient narrative set 12,000 years ago that spotlights the indigenous Bana Kuma ceremonies of Zimbabwe. Helmed by the pen and voice of the talented Berry, the eclectic cast includes: Afro-European vocalist Marie Daulne (founder of the internationally acclaimed quintet Zap Mama) playing the role of "Black Panther Queen"; seven musicians performing on non-traditional instrumentation including African drums and the shona Mbira; and a diverse nine-member theatrical ensemble that brings the storybook to life through music, song and high-powered contemporary dance. For more information, visit banakuma.org.

LOCATION: BAM Fisher Fishman Space
RUN TIME: 2hrs
ALL TICKETS: $35
