In a new production by Project ChArma Co-Director Ama Law, the theme of water becomes a meeting ground, a passageway, and a vehicle for the movement of the African diaspora. Tides interrogates legacy and how one stays connected to a larger ancestral knowledge in the face of generations of grief and trauma. As described by dramaturgs Leticia Ridley and Gianina Lockley, our oceans serve “as a gravesite that represent the millions of Africans during the Transatlantic slave trade that were thrown or jumped overboard due to the harsh and unpredictable conditions of their forced voyage.” The work travels from sorrow to celebration in an uplifting evening of dance.
