Mixed Blood continues to collaborate with a multicultural, intersectional group of theater-makers and audiences. Our upcoming project, Dia.Spora (from Greek root word Dia meaning Across & Spora/Speirein meaning Scatter) will showcase some of the voices in the African diaspora through theater and storytelling. The project was initiated and curated by Ansa Akyea and Atlese Robinson. The original works will be performed by well-recognized theatre performers, Ansa Akyea, Atlese Robinson, Ashe Jaafaru,Pamela Otali, Talief Ticker, Carolyn Michelle Smith, and Bruce Young. We are excited to see these works come to life next week, Friday, December 18th at 7pm Facebook Live!
