Experience the voices of those who support his imprisonment, those who love and know him best, and those who feel the need to Free Jujube Brown!
The African Continuum Theatre Company concludes its first full season at the Atlas Performing Arts Center with Free Jujube Brown! on June 13th and 14th. Written, conceived and performed by Psalmayene 26, Free Jujube Brown! is a one-man play that uses Hip-Hop movement and musical compositions to help tell the story of a young writer who accidentally kills a police officer.
In the tradition of Anna Deavere Smith and Sarah Jones, Psalmayene’s multi-character solo performance examines issues of racial identity, the commercialization of revolution, and the state of Hip-Hop culture. Free Jujube Brown! is the thematic sequel to The Hip-Hop Nightmares of Jujube Brown, first presented at the African Continuum in 1999.
Free Jujube Brown! will be presented at the Atlas Performing Arts Center at 1444 H Street NE, New York, on June 13th and 14th. Performances will be at 1 pm on Friday and Saturday evenings with a 2 pm matinee on Saturday. Regular single tickets are $34, student/senior tickets are $90. Group rates for parties of ten or more available.
