SPRINT

DESCRIPTION

Presented by Nana Duffuor and Indigo MateoSprint is a performance blending film, theater, poetry, music, and dance to tell the coming of age story of Nana D., a queer black child of Ghanaian immigrants, discovering herself (and her dignity) in White America.

In the era of #BlackGirlMagic, Sprint begs the critical question: “What happens when a magical black girl breaks?”

Based off an original screenplay and collection of written works by Nana Duffuor, Sprint explores the writer’s experiences of anti-blackness and self-denial, sexual violence and self-destruction, healing and resistance. From Nana’s first act of resistance (urinating on the classroom floor of her detested sixth-grade teacher) to the powerful letter she sends to her rapists via Linkedin ten years after the event, Sprint draws upon Nana’s most hilarious and at times horrifying life lessons to inspire community healing.

Sprint: A reading, performance & dialogue

I am performing music alongside a creative partner of mine, Nana Duffuor, a brilliant screenwriter and soon to be filmmaker. Her vision for her feature length film, "Sprint" has been an honor to see blossom... Email me at indigomateo@gmail.com to get the details of this event if you're not invited on FB

 

"It's a thrill and an honor to present to you, Sprint--a screenplay and a collection of written works that tell a coming-of-age story of self-denial, survival, resistance, and healing, based on my life and in my own words. 

Sprint is a collection of experiences gifted with meaning, balled up, pushed down, and, eventually, pushed out in the throws of grief and joy. It's a little something about myself that I want you to know--a story I'd like for us to share together.

On July 27, I look forward to breaking bread; sharing a teaser for the screenplay; and reading, performing, and discussing some of the written works from the collection with you. There will also be special performances from Indigo Mateo

Scrumptious food & non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. (BYOB). There is a requested contribution of $10 at the door. Please contribute what feels good to you. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

Thank you so much for your support! I hope to see you there."
