Akwaaba: Healing a Queer Black Soul
November 16 @ 7:00 pm - November 17 @ 7:00 pm
Akwaaba: A one-person show that takes you on a personal journey into the realization that there is no complete resolve to the full healing of oneself, but there is always a beginning, a start to the process, and a determination. Naa Akua creates a space of expression through poetry, sound, ritual, and monologue. Naa says Akwaaba (welcome) to the stories of the when, what, why, and how of their Queer Black Healing Process.
Naa Akua is a queer liberator of sound and word, an actor, performance arts teacher, and a continuous student at being present. Intentionality, love, and encouragement is the focus of Akua’s work that can be found in tracks like The Elements or Till It All Goes Away from their mixtape Odd(s) Balance (on SoundCloud.com). Naa Akua has been a cast member of Book-it Repertory Theaters adaptation of T. Geronimo Johnson’s “Welcome to Braggsville”, a part of last year’s “Late Night Revue Dear White People,” a Boom Boom LRoux production, Theater Schmeaters debut of “Welcome to Arroyos”, and “Tailfeather an Earthpearl Collective” production.
